!–Can I change the word “File” at the top of a Dataview table to something else. It’s put there automatically, and I wonder if I can change it and if I do will that mess things up
As far as I know “File” is not the default for dataview table headings - you probably included that in the dataview settings (Settings → Dataview → Table Settings) by yourself. So either change the default setting or, alternatively, go for the “table without id” option, something like:
TABLE WITHOUT ID file.link AS Name
Change the word “Name” to whatever you want.
And I strongly recommend to read dataview’s documentation. There are a couple of tricky dataview queries where this forum and also the obsidian Discord channel can offer lots of help - but you should at least understand the simple basics of how dataview works.
Thanks, I didn’t go through all the Dataview settings. I should have. I only need the very minimal basic stuff, so I tend not to spend time learning all the in’s and out’s of every plugin. The main reason I like Obsidian is that I can use templates and a lot of one click solutions to save time. Spending the time I save learning more complicated functions to do things I don’t need defeats my purpose. I really should at least go through the settings.
