Power Fx: Column names escape double quotes

Power Fx: Column names escape double quotes

Power Fx is making a syntax change regarding the specification of column names in various functions, such as AddColumns, DropColumns, ShowColumns, and others. Currently, column names need to be wrapped in double quotes as a text string, which will no longer be required in the future. This change is being made to ensure consistency with other Power Fx hosts and to simplify the use of these functions by not requiring logical names. This syntax change will automatically update existing apps to reflect the new syntax. Other Power Fx 1.0 hosts, such as Copilot Studio, Power Automate Desktop, and Cards, have already been using this new syntax for a year, making this change consistent across the board.

Find out more about this change in the official Power Apps blog post.
