Apply Label to Fields in search object

Hello, I was wondering if there is any way that the fields used in a search object can be renamed or have a label applied to them. The fields I have aren't very user-friendly and I want to label it to something that is easier to understand. Every other object in QlikView has a spot to apply labels, but so far I can't find one for searches.

Hi Danny,

Why not rename all your fields to user friendly names in your load script?

Hi Danny,

You can actually control which field you want to appear in search box. see the screenshot below.

So, you can rename the field while loading..say

Load

Year(Orderdate) as Orderdate,

Year(Orderdate) as Year,

.....

.....

from yourtable;

then in search object you can use only Year.

Other option is that if you dont want orderdate in the dashboard, you can rename or alias it with a meaningfull name.

Load

Year(Orderdate) as Year,

.....

.....

from yourtable;
