Change field display name in Adhoc Reporting


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
    • Adhoc Reporting (Report Table)
    • ORD - Detailed Reporting Live Data (Report Canvas)

Reproducing the Issue

Try to rename a field/ column name in adhoc reporting.


It is NOT possible to change the field/column names in Adhoc reporting.

But it is possible in another reporting solution 'ORD - Detailed Reporting Live data', which is based on the adhoc framework i.e. all the table, fields that are present in Adhoc are also present here in the same structure.

In ORD - Detailed Reporting Live data, it is possible to rename a field name by using calculated column.

In calculated column, you give a new field name and in 'value' select the field you want to rename.
This means, you get the exact value of that field but the field name is changed.
