Connecting mysql database, table name and column names mangled


I have connected a couple databases and Metabase appears to mangle names. Ex: “invoice_id” get turned into “In Voice ID”. Is there a way to turn this off? Currently we have to go into the data mode and change a bunch of fields.


Sorry about that. Metabase tries to take a guess at making your table names “friendlier,” but it doesn’t always get it right. If you’d like to turn this behavior off (and reset your tables’ names), there’s a setting in the General section of the Admin Panel that lets you do that:


This happened to me too and it was alarming. Thank you for the answer!
