    Connecting to data > field automatically renamed

    . Clement

      Hello

       

      Writing a note to share my frustration with this new data connector which came with Tableau 8.2...

       

      What a ****! It renames automatically all the fields of my data source!

       

      For example [CustomerID] gets automatically transformed into [Customer ID]. If I decided not to use space in my data source fields, I expect Tableau not to change field names automatically without my consent... Now I have to go in each single field and manually reset names to default...

       

      Frustrated! Frustrated! Frustated! On top, the new connector look and feel seems a copy paste of Microsoft Access... which I hate...

       

      Anyway, any proposal to prevent fields to be automatically renamed?

       

      Thank you

      C.
