SAP HANA Field Names in a Calculation View Change from Column Label to Names When Data is Extracted in Tableau Desktop

Issue

When a data connection from Tableau Desktop to a SAP HANA Calculation View is changed from live to extract, field names in Tableau Desktop change from being the SAP HANA column Labels to the SAP HANA column Names.  

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 10.3.2, 10.3.3, 10.4.0, 10.2.5, and 10.2.4
  • SAP HANA

Resolution

A possible workaround would be to create the initial workbook in Tableau Desktop 10.3.1 (or 10.3.0). The workbook should maintain the labels even after being saved in later versions of Tableau Desktop. 

Cause

This behavior is related to a known issue (ID: 699379).
