    Field names in extract revert to original names

    Dror Svartzman

      Hi,

       

      I'm new to Tableau so please bear with me..

       

      I'm running Tableau dektop 10.2.

       

      I've created a workbook which generates .tde extracts. I would like to reuse those extract in other workbooks. When I add the .tde as a datasource the fields are displayed correctly.

      however, when i add second .tde as connection and join it to the previous table, the second connection (table) shows the original database fields instead of the renamed fields

      As you can see Field Name and Remote Field Name are identical.

      It looks like the first connection will show the revised (corrected) field and any  connection the follow will show the Remote Field name.

       

      Is this behaivor by design? If not, can you please help me out here?
