Header issue

Asteroid

Hi everyone,

 

I created a new column and it appears my column name is too long and gives me an error.  Is there a way to increase the limit or a work around?

I've never came across this issue in all my time working with alteryx.

 

Just how many characters are you trying to do?

Not something I would ever imagine identifying but there does seem to be a 255 character limit on header length.

 

Check out the workflow I have built to test this.

 

Can I ask what the business case is for building out such long headers in the first place?
