In Office 365 I have created one custom list and in that created one Column as "Folder". When I have tried to access this field using RestAPI or CSOM or using U2U Caml query I am not able to get this fields information.

May be reserved name or reserved keyword I have also seen an internal name of this column is "Folder".

Not sure what is an issue with this column apart from other columns I am able to fetch information.

Also asked a question in SharePoint community as well. Reference link

"Folder" is a special name in SharePoint and it will have conflict in the list. Try to create the column with another name for example FolderForTest and then test if it works.
