I'm trying to set a formula that uses the Title field which was renamed. But when I save the calculated field the SPO shows an error telling me that I'm using a field that does not exist (!!!).

enter image description here

The [Projeto] column is the renamed Title column. And the error is : enter image description here

  • In the formula, replace ; (semicolon) with , (comma) Commented Jun 23, 2021 at 13:26
  • I have tested that too, but the problem is related to the SharePoint not recognizing the renamed Title column. Commented Jun 24, 2021 at 11:25

Per my test, I can reproduce your issue in my end. To solve this issue, do not change the name, continue to use the title and it will work normally. You could have a try.

  • Thanks for you reply... I tried to rename it back to "Title", but did not work. I must use this existing list, so do you think I won't be able to set up this column while this bug is up? Commented Jun 24, 2021 at 11:28

I couldn't reproduce this issue in SharePoint Online List.


  1. Renamed the [Title] column to [Cal-Title] and filled in with dummy values
  2. The list already has a column named [Countries] with Country Names
  3. Created a Calculated column, named [CalcOfRenamedTitle], with the following formula.
  1. The formula outputs the expected calculated values without any issues. See the screenshot below
