Subject: [BPCS-L] Field Column Headings of BPCS Files

Dear ALL,
Apology if my question is not exactly related to BPCS. But the data I am
using comes from BPCS files.
I was using SQL and when selecting to show data file records, the column
headings showed the field text and not the field names.
Can anyone let me know how to show the field names in the column heading
instead of field text.
I am not sure if it has to do with how the BPCS files was created. Anyhow,
how can I control it.

Sample of my SQL statement: SELECT * from RCM

Thank you so much for your help.
