sharepoint list Title column name is different from the web shown

Hi all,

So I have powerapps input form , created from a sharepoint list and exported data to excel file.

However, the Title column (1st column) is something in Japanese which I have no idea what it means.

Why does the excel file not shown the Title name (TEN KH) like what i named the column?

My company's headquarter is in Japan btw

The japanese text says "title" Cat Happy

Even though you've renamed the title column, the internal name in SharePoint is still "title" (or in this case, タイトル) so that is what Excel will use.

Thank you for pointing out,


Is there anyway I can change this?

Can the internal name be changed to something elsE?

To my knowledge, there is no way to change the internal SharePoint column names, apart from deleting and readding a column with a new name (however, the title column can't be deleted).


If you really wanted to change the name of the title column you could mark it as not mandatory, then use a new column instead, but the title column would still be there in the list.
