Known Solution

The problem happens when an extra empty column gets added to the grid. It has no name, no short name, no data at all. It’s impossible to add an empty column through the editor, but it looks like it’s cropped up due to some third party add-ons.

Just delete the null column in the field editor (Admin- Channel Admin- Channel Fields) and you should be good.
