    Mapping of Column Names with Business Names

    Hari Chandan Reddy Maryada



      Is there any way or plugin in Tableau where I can map the Database column names with the business Names of Columns (I have list of column names and there respective business names in an excel) ) instead of renaming each column manually in Tableau.

          Hello Hari,


          I don't think there is such a function.


          What I could figure out is to edit the twb file with a text editor and add "caption='rename' to the column.


                <column datatype='string' name='[Customer ID]' role='dimension' type='nominal' />

                <column caption='rename' datatype='string' name='[Customer Name]' role='dimension' type='nominal' />


          Well, this is also manual
