Rename table

This script function renames one or more existing QlikView internal table(s) after they have been loaded.

Either syntax: rename table or rename tables can be used.


Rename Table (using mapname | oldname to newname{ , oldname to newname })

Rename Tables (using mapname | oldname to newname{ , oldname to newname })


Rename table arguments
Argument Description
mapname The name of a previously loaded mapping table containing one or more pairs of old and new table names.

Example 2:  


Mapping LOAD oldnames, newnames from tabnames.csv;

Rename Tables using TabMap;
