Remove - Imported tables now have the Table_ prefix

Recently, all tables I import via the get data - From excel workbook feature have the Table_ prefix. I find this incredablity annoying and time consuming to remove them. I have been importing data this way for years without this prefix.


Does anyone know how to remove this ?

Hi @josephrandall ,


Does the table name have Table_ prefix? Or do the column names in the table have Table_ prefixes?

If possible, please provide some screenshots. Take care to protect private data.

It is the table name. I imported a table called AH and excel named the table Table_AH instead of AH which is always use to.
