Option to keep the field name alias when exporting

  • 330

  • I appreciate the ability to create an alias for field names within the attribute table.  I would like to have the option added when exporting data or tables, for whether the original names or aliases should be used for the field names in the new layer or table.

This would be very helpful. Many of our fields are coded domains. When our GIS analysts go to export the attribute data, they are usually doing it to provide our clients with a quick excel report of the data. They do not all know what the codes mean, and it takes too much time to translate them back to an alias that is understandable to them.

Yes, using field name alias' would be handy when exporting data  - especially to shapefile format where the field names are sometimes truncated.
