Discussion Board for collaboration on QlikView Scripting.
This videos show how to use a data dictionaryto alias (or rename) fields.
This is very good.
However, in some cases the datasource field names are coded, i.e TLBKID, TRTTYP.
As a developer I would normally rename the fields on which I do something (where clauses, if statements etc.) in the beginning of the script, for better readability.
Then at the end of the script I could use your technique to rename the rest of the fields.

Very good point Magnus. This technique can be used in combination with manual aliasing. QlikView will simply keep the manually aliased names and replace the ones that have not been manually aliased.
