Color Coding Data Field to match Data Source

When using the Select Tool or the Join Tool and adding data from multiple data sources, I would love to see an option to color code a data field to match the data source it was derived from.  It would make it much easier to determine you are selecting the correct data field later in a workflow, especially when the multiple data sources have the same data field names.

This would be super handy. In addition it would be great if as part of the interactive results grid could have a colour mark to show the fields on joined datasets to you can trace back the origin.


How do you imagine it would work further downstream once there are calculated fields?
