I am trying to query a simple multiple lines of text column on a custom list in SharePoint 2013 on-prem. Whenever I include the text column in the $select fields I get an error that the field is not valid.
I found another person who is having the same issue but there were no replies to their post. Multiple lines of text not accessible in $select/$expand query : Sharepoint 2013
I would rather not have to use listdata.svc and would rather not have to make another round trip just for one field. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Edit The error is the same as the other post.
The query to field '[MyList]/[MyField]' is not valid.
Here is the REST query. The reason I am using $expand is because I am querying off a lookup field on MyParentList that points to MyChildList.
This generates the error above:
This does not:
I am actually querying a bunch of other fields, all single line of text, and they work fine. I truncated the queries for readability. I can guarantee you with 100% certainty I am not using an invalid field name.
