Dynamic Rename the Column Header with Run Time Date




Hello, New to Alteryx, please see below for the requirements trying to accomplish

1 .Whenever the input file is updated (probably once a day), the updated date is added as a new column, see 12/17/2018, 12/18/2018, etc.

2. It also populates the issue status for each issue at the current running time.


Thanks so much in advance!

Your attached file looks like the output, the input ("today's data") would need to be joined on to this via the Issue ID, as a left outer join so that any new issue IDs would be added as well.


Before the join, you can use the Dynamic Rename tool to rename the column to the current run date
