"company_code" to make it as just "code").

Dynamically create an external dw with all the columns you want and column
names you want. Then move the data from original dw to know dw, and then
call saveas(). It does not need any formatting. Create a external dw, export
to syntax, look at how its structured. Then you can dynamically build one
very easily by loop...Get Value of column dynamic of datawindow crosstab

...Dynamically name columns in dynamically created datagrid
I am using code that I found on the net to take a datatable, drop it into a datagrid, and then export the whole thing as an excel spreadsheet.
So far for the small numberes I have tried it works. Currently I have an application where the number of columns ranges between 40 and 70.
The problem that I have is I want the first row to have names which are meaningful to the user, but I don't want to rename my datatable columns, only the datagrid columns. Right now the Excel column names are the same as the datatable names. Those names are meaningful to me (the programmer) but meaningless to...SQL: Column names, can ONLY get "name" instead of "table.name"

and i run the query, the dataset will contain column names 'ID' and 'ID'
