Dynamic Rename Tool

The Dynamic Rename tool renames certain fields, all fields, or dynamic or unknown fields (at runtime) within an input data stream using different methods.

Use this tool when parsing text files, or if there is a pattern to the fields you want to rename such as: removing a prefix or suffix, or replacing underscores with spaces.

Often a field name will come from the first row of data or another description file that is only known at runtime.

Configuration Properties

Configuration properties change depending on the rename mode chosen. Choose the rename mode from the drop down list.

Rename modes include:

Things to watch out for:

When using a right input for field names, be careful about the record order.  A join or similar tool can change the order of records and you wouldn't want to associate the wrong field names with the wrong fields.
