In Altova MapForce I can map XML to CSV but when I append fields through the CSV Component Settings dialog it always gives a default name to the field (e.g. Field12).

I can change these default field names by changing the .mfd mapping definition file in a text editor but I'm sure there must be a way to do this through the GUI. Is there?

Simply click the column name (in the component settings dialog) to edit. You might have to switch off "First row contains field names" first.

Yes, it's the 'First row contains field names' checkbox that was preventing this. Thanks! – Matthew Murdoch Feb 16 '10 at 12:03
