Is there a way in DSWS to get a time series request to automatically return the series name as the column header?

In DSWS a time series request will return the series code as the column header. Is there a way to automatically return the series name (similar to retName=True for datatypes)?

Below is an example of my request.

ds.get_data (tickers='SPXPDFU.F, SPXPDFUYR', fields=['X'], start='2000-01-01', end='2049-01-01', freq='Q')

Thanks in advance,

Alison

@Alison.Quick

The library can't replace the column names.

However, you can rename the column name by using Python code. For more information, please refer to the answers in the thread.
