Keep columns ORDER when Exporting (into CSV)

Keep columns ORDER when Exporting (into CSV)
Hi,

When exporting a prepared data set as a CSV file (for example), is there a trick to make sure to keep the same ORDER of columns as it appears in DSS ?

Currently, every time I export data, the column order is changed randomly.



Thanks for the help, it is critical to have automation on downstream systems...

Hi,

That's not supposed to happen. Are you exporting directly from the prepared dataset's Explore screen, or from an analysis ?

If exporting from the dataset : What is the type of the dataset that you're trying to export ?

If exporting from an analysis: could you give more details about the kind of preparation steps that you used ?

Is there anything "special" about the columns (special column names, duplicate columns, ...) ?
