Dynamic rename Reporting Tool

Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to dynamic rename the headers in the basic table tool. There is a rename field but it is static. Many thanks!

Hi @Istwineres,

 

The simple answer is it depends how / what you're trying to dynamically rename the new fields to. We can set the table tool to dynamically give prefixes / suffixes / change the name of new incoming fields to a set value by changing the configuration options of the "Dynamic or Unknown Fields". Other than that we would probably need to dynamically change the field names before they go into the table tool. Whatever you're looking to achieve i'm sure would be possible but we just need a bit more clarity.

Hi, the problem is if I use a Dynamic Rename tool then in the basic table columns I'm showed the missing fields. How can I handle this? Thanks
