Column name retrieved as EXPR1001 instead of actual column name from excel file

Hi - I am trying to fetch couple of columns from a .xlsb file containing 500,000+ rows. Hence, I am using execute query to retrieve the desired columns and writing the retrieved datatable in a .CSV file.

However, interestingly, when i opened the .csv file, I could see one of the column names is “EXPR1001” instead an actual column name (“XX DATE”).

Has anyone come across such issues?

Do you have example of original file column (image) - it doesn’t just change the name randomly.

There may be something in your execute query which is causing the column name to change?

Hi, This is the column from the original file.


“Select [CIP ACCOUNT], Cdate([PROVIDER GL DATE]) from [CIP Report$] where [CIP ACCOUNT] like ‘%1200400%’ or [CIP ACCOUNT] like ‘%1201800%’ or [CIP ACCOUNT] like ‘%1202500%’ or [CIP ACCOUNT] like ‘%1201100%’ or [CIP ACCOUNT] like ‘%1152600%’ or [CIP ACCOUNT] like ‘%1151900%’”

Hi Its [Provider GL Date]… Just for a representation i mentioned as [xx date]

So you want the header to be [Provider GL Date] or [XX Date]?

You need to specify Cdate([PROVIDER GL DATE]) As’ Provider GL Date’ in SQL if you want to keep column header?
