Report column name renaming

Hi,

 

Is it possible to rename the field name in reports? ie, we drag and drop the field and can we have a new name (as display name) for report alone. 

 

Thanks,

Aravind

Hi,

 

You can achieve this through Report Type.

You can change the Field names in Custom Report types.

Click Edit layout and Double Click on the field you what to change the name and enter the name you want to display in Report. Click on save.

Now if you observe report with the report types the field name (Columns) will be changes as you modified.

 

Please let me know if you have any question in this regard.

Hi @hari, this is fine for custom report types, is there any way to do with standard report types? For instance, I need to do this on report type "CPQ Quotes with Opportunity"
