    Naming fields in one extract using the fields in another

    Brian McClain

      I regularly get a new data refresh on a TXT file with 87 columns.  The vendor will not provide field names so in Tableau they all import as [F1], [F2], etc. when creating an extract.  It gets old renaming them all each time I get an update (or even create a new worksheet), especially now that we're on 8.0 and it takes so much longer to perform that function.  Is there a way to assign field names in an extract using an older file's names?  My first attempt was to do a Data...Replace Data Source but it retained the unedited names.
