DB Connect not resolving MySQL Table column names

I have connected to a MySQL Table which has 10 columns using DB Connect. It gets the data in search. But in the search, it doesn't show as columns in "Table" view.I can see all the fields as comma separated in Raw and List format. What to do for this ?

Finally got it fixed . I used Key Value as the source type than CSV. Now it is perfectly resolving the columns without any additional configuration changes 🙂

Also, When I do DB Queries, it is properly showing as columns. But I don't want to run queries every time and it could affect the DB performance as it tries to run complex queries

It is showing data. But all the columns are clubbed together and showing in one column. If I load a CSV file, and view in table mode, it resolves the column names and shows like a neat table. But that is not happening when I connect the DB directly

I'm not sure I quite understand. Do you mean that when you look at the results in the search view "table" mode, nothing shows up? If so, can you try adding " | table *" to the end of your search?

Add the fields as selected fields and they should then show up in the table view.
