Think this is a major bug but can someone else check please - Sharepoint New Columns

So i started creating my app, have lots of data sources.


Mid design i have found that i need additonal columns in one of my sharepoint list.

So i added and can see in the datasource within sharepoint.

Part of my app uses collections, so i clearcollect the table.


OH, wheres my column...

It succesfully shows up in the collection preview.. It sucessfully adds to forms... But.. I cant see it for a data table, and i cant write to it with patch..


Ive also tried a new collection name, still the same..

Short of creating a new sharepoint table im short of ideas.


Help or confirm please..

Ive also tried adding another few columns but they also behave the same

Not applicable

It happens when adding new columns to SharePoint List. 


Here is what you can do:


Try to refresh the datasource.

Try to delete the datasource and add it again


This should fix the issues.

If it is not a complicated Data Table, delete it and try to recreate it. Maybe this will fix it. Actually before you try add another Data Table and see if the field is there.

ive just been using a test data table to check, if i add the data source for the sharepoint list the field shows up.

If i add the collection from that datasource the field doesnt show up.
