Creating New SP List from Excel Document

Brass Contributor

When I create a new SP List from and existing Excel file the conversion always turns the column heading from Excel to 'Field_' (whatever number) in the new SP List.

Why does this happen, and is there a way to stop it so that the original Excel column heading showsin the SP List?

Hi @Phishdawg,


I believe this would happen only where there is a conflict with the standard columns in SharePoint, in this case "First Name" would be associated with account properties field hence a new name has been assigned.
