Use Metabase Field Names As Column Names in Excel/CSV download

When I download the result of a question (raw data), the name of each field in the excel spreadsheet is from the original database. Is there an option to use the field names I edited in the admin settings? I’m referring to the field names which you can change/create in Settings > Admin > Data Model > (Table/View Name), and then select the field name to change it.

I went through and made the field names more readable than when they were defined in the original database… I would like to use those human readable names in the excel download.\


Hi @Blake
There’s an issue open this, go and upvote by clicking :+1: on the first post:

This is fixed in the late development versions (I am currently running
so you can expect the next release to work just fine.

I have had this issue - when I rename the field as part of the Question settings - the xls/csv uses the database name , not the question name as on the screen
So is the solution to rename the field in Admin/Data model ?

Even so - can this be overridden at question level ??
