How to remove underscore from all the columns

Hi Everyone,

 

I have a file which will have a column added to it everytime a file comes for a month.

 

But, when I use Cross-tab to group them and create that column, it adds "_" to the column Name, as below:

 

Process NameDec_2020Jan_2021
Process 1abcbcd
Process 2gbdgsh

 

I know I can use "Dynamic Rename" tool, but it doesnot works on the new column that gets added every month.

I would use a technique like this to replace the underscores after the Crosstab.

Hi @gagandeep_dhall 

 

Just for context and educational purposes. The dynamic rename should work with new columns. If you check the Dynamic or Unknown Fields option, it will update new incoming fields that did not exist on the previous month.

@DavidP 's solution also is a good way to get around it.

 

Pedro.
