How to prevent Splunk DB Connect 2 from renaming columns when using dbxquery?

Contributor

Hi All,

Is there any way of preventing DB Connect 2 renaming the columns when you query data via a DBXquery command?

eg, a column in a table could be called "Loaded", but when querying, it gets renamed to "(007) UXCCCHAT_Status.Loaded.datetime".

Is there any way of keeping it as "Loaded" when Splunk ingests it?
I have four tables I need to ingest. They all have upwards of 40 columns each, and I'd rather not have to do a lengthy rename operation on them all.

Thanks in advance
Gib
