Pivot Schema Designer - how to change Field-Headers in Field-Selection Listbox


how can we change the field-headers in the field-selection listbox?

It seems that the field-selection listbox allways takes the underlying dataclass member names from datasource.

See the attached screenshot. The field-selection listbox shows the member names of the underlying dataclass. The column/row/value sections shows the field-header set via the PivotItem/PivotComputationInfo FieldHeader member.

We would like to have the field-headers in the field-selection listbox.

Thank you

It's been 9 years and this problem still persists. When can we expect a solution?

Hi Daniel Gieseler,

Your requirement to change the name of the fields listed in the PivotTableFieldList can be achieved by using the PivotItem.FieldCaption property. We have user guide documentation that explains about the FieldCaption property, please find it below.

We hope that the solution addresses your requirement.
