Thanks mz, but it's not working.
I didn't know about using a preceding load.
I got the single field to load ok, but the rest of the table is missing now
I added another field to see what else came across.
LOAD Date(start_date,'MM/DD/YYYY') as SprintSchedDate;
number as change_number, < -- this field doesn't show up
start_date < -- this field doesn't show up either, and I couldn't rename it or else the first LOAD statement didn't work
LOAD SPRINTDATE as SprintSchedDate,
Ready for the next thing to try...< -- this field doesn't show up
