Replace Colume Name with Colume Comment

Hi all,

 

I am creating a PowerBI report based on several tables/views on Snowflake.

 

The source data has technical field names but also the functional name as comment included. In our Report we want to show this comment and not rename the colume manually on the Querry Editor.

 

Example:

Definition of the source colume:

BELNR VARCHAR(10) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Posting number',

On PBI I want to show the Colume as Posting number not BELNR.

 

Is there any chance we can replace the colume name automatically?

Best regards,
Paul

@PaulTim You can do it manually without changing it in original table like below

Double click on and rename simply

Hi @Karthik12
yep that would work but I would need to do it manually for each and every dimension and we will have hundrets of those. So I was looking for some automatization. 

@PaulTim If you want to replace same name in all places, then you can edit in the data table itself.

I don't know any other bulk automation option available to my knowledge.

Can you please provide an example of the value inside the Column ?
