How to search for Column ID

Sometimes it is useful to use the ‘Column ID’ rather than the column name in a formula. This way the reference will always work, even if the column name changes. This is especially relevant in Cross Doc.

I have used this technique, and now many months later I am looking at a Cross Doc formula and I am unsure which column the formula references as it only presents a cryptic column ID.

The sidebar search does not return a result - anyone have a good idea of how to find the column?
