Dataverse Field names changing

Hi all, 

I am aware of this thread and solution suggested, which does not sort the issue. 

My issue is that the Dataverse developers are using _ and CamelCase names and I don't want these in the report, as there is no consistency.  Also this is not happening on all changes to field names. 

So how can I stop this happening?

Table.RenameColumns(#"Removed Other Columns",{{"new_auditid", "Audit Key"}, {"createdon", "Record Created On"}, {"new_audit_id", "Audit ID"}, {"cr5cd_raisedby", "Raised by Key"} . . . . .

 

Has anyone got a better solution and fix - and no I can't change in Dataverse as this a canvas app in production, and don't even get me started on sloppy contractor work in the first place not build things properly!!

HI @DemoFour,

In fact, I mean you can create some dummy data with raw table structure and share the expected result. Then we can use these sample data and follow result snap to test code formulas.

In my opinion, If you want to show some information that include in the field names, you can try to create a dictionary table with default field names. Then you can refer the following links to use template table name or values in M query rename function to dynamic rename table field names.

Hi @DemoFour ,

Can you please share a pbix or some dummy data that keep the raw data structure with expected results? It should help us clarify your scenario and test to coding formula.

Good morning @v-shex-msft   Thank you for your reply.  Unfortunately, I cannot send you a P.BIX as I can not expose the dataverse instance and data.  

I can however supply my M code, this is very simple UI and changed field names code, nothing I write myself in M.  Alternatively, I can raise this internally with Microsoft support and link you in if that is a better solution to test out the coding etc. I have used? 

Thank you for your response
