Unable to update SharePoint list column - Column not found

Hi,

 

I'm trying to update a few SharePoint columns. However, it says column not found when it does exist on SP list.

 

I used the following formula:

 

Patch(Leaves, LookUp(Leaves, ID = ID), {RA_Approval_R: Approve, Roster_CalCheck: true})

 

It says 'RA-Approval_R' column does not exist. It is just a Single line of text column.

 

What could be the issue? 

 

Thanks!

Have you verified that "RA-Approval_R" is the internal name of the column in SharePoint? To check, go to List Settings and click on the column name. Then on the column settings page look at URL and at the end there should be a parameter called "Field=InternalFieldName". The value of "InternalFieldName" is the internal name of the field.

Thanks Jeff! Wasn't aware of the Internal field name...

I used this to solve the same issue I was having, but noticed that some of my Sharepoint columns required this approach, and others (in the same Sharepoint list) allowed me to use the display name of the column, not the internal name. 

All of the columns were created at the same time, so dont know what the difference between them is...
