Rename Column Header based on Value from Second Table / Variable


I would like to rename a column based on a value from a second table.  Is something like this possible? @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ - I have copied you because you have been able to answer a bunch of my previous questions.

Thank you!

Hi @Emily Berg ,

I've been also puzzled with the case, but our developers found a solution using the PIVOT table function:

PIVOT (FIRST('Key') for 'Header Key')

Seems that I've got your case right from the screenshot: we go to the second table, use a condition, select a value based on it and rename the column from the first table - the new name matches this value.

The additional "Index" column can be further hidden with the help of the Table Filter macro or additional Table Transformer macro.

@Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ - this is so great, thank you!  Let's see if we can go a step further - can we do multiple column header changes as once or do I need to wrap in multiple transformers?

(SELECT * FROM T1 LEFT JOIN T2 ON T2.'Index' = 1)
PIVOT(FIRST('Key') for 'Key Column', (FIRST('Summary') for 'Summary Column'))

Thank you!


I don't think that the PIVOT function supports multiple aggregation under one command. So you may use several Table Transformer macros and repeat the original query with different column names and conditions.
