Changing the name of a data table

The name of a data table is shown in all data table selectors and it is used as the default name in new table visualizations. If the original data table name is unclear, you may want to change it to a better name. Authors can rename data tables in the Data canvas.


You must have some data loaded in the analysis and the analysis must be in Editing mode.


  1. On the authoring bar, click Data canvas .
  2. Make sure the data table of interest is selected in the upper-left drop-down list.
    This step is only applicable if you have two or more data tables in the analysis.
  3. On the data canvas toolbar, click Rename.
  4. In the popover, type a new name for the data table and click OK.
    The data table name is updated.
