How are you doing the transfer?

I've been semi-successful using some properties on a JDBC Connection URL to bring over the column headings.

JDBC Driver:
jdbc:as400://;translate binary=true; extended metadata = true;

This would bring over a column heading looking like this: 'Order Number'

I'm not sure if there something similar with ODBC.
I think I have also had success using some of Chuck's suggestions.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Data transfer question

I need to transfer the contents of a MAPICS file into an Excel spreadsheet.
When I do this I get column headings such as ORDNO.

Is there something I can do to get different column headings other than the field name.

I want to automate this and not go into Excel to adjust column heading each time this transfer is run.
