Reproducing the Issue

Reports>Create Ad hoc report (Single domain type=Development Plan) >Edit column to include field "desc" >Run Ad hoc report


The "desc field" is a hard code field in back end by defult, it will always be mapping to the fixed label "description" in Ad hoc report. 


You can configure the field-definition id="desc" to a reportable field to reflect customized label in report.

Please add parameter reportable to the field definition to make it a customized field. Just like below:

<field-definition id="desc" type="textarea" required="false" detail="false" viewdefault="on" showlabel="true" reportable="field1" field-show-coaching-advisor="false" cascade-update="push-down">

After making the change, click "Sync" button via Provisioning>Company Settings>, then login back to system and check Ad hoc report, you will see the custom label appears without data loss.



If you are customer and don't have access to Provisioning environment, please contact your implementation partner to get the configuration done, Or please contact SAP PS service to raise a configuration modification request.
