How to replace dot delimited column names after R Tool?


Hi all,


I frequently notice that after using the R tool the column names get delimited by a dot instead of staying the same. Is there a way to disable this?

It is fairly frustrating because I have a lot of fields.


Thank you 

I have the same problem. You may try a dynamic rename, select all your fields, and then write a formula like (I'm on my phone so apologies for any typos in the formula)

Replace([_CurrentField_],"."," ")

This will change the dots to spaces

Hi Patrick,


I suppose this is the only solution as a workaround. Thanks
