In order to better identify a column, you can rename it.

You will rename the two columns previously created and give them a meaningful name. Those new colums will be used to create the local part of the email addresses.

Procedure

  1. Click the column you want to rename, First_Name_Copy in this example.
  2. Perform one of the following actions:
    • Double-click the name of the column.
    • Use the Rename Column option in the column contextual menu.
  3. Enter Email_First_Name as new column name and press Enter to apply it.
  4. Repeat these steps to rename the Last_Name_Copy column as Email_Last_Name.

Results

The selected columns are renamed.
