    On the report.
    https://help.quickbase.com/user-assistance/changing_field_name.html?Highlight=column%20name

    Hidden in the fine details
    "Tip: If you just want a different label to appear in a report, change the column heading. To do so, click the column heading menu and select Column properties. Within the Column Properties dialog, type in the name that you want to display at the top of the column (300 character limit). This name will appear above the column in this report only, and if you save the report as a spreadsheet. The field name remains the same. "

    That explains why I couldn't find how.  I was looking in the wrong location.  

    Now for the next question, and I have a pretty good idea what the answer will be.  Is it possible to change the names in just 1 report?

    There is a white triangle drop down if you hover on the right of the black heading.

    A tip that Jim provided above applies to only one report. If you want the labels to change on all reports  then you would typically change the native field name.

    PERFECT!!!  That's exactly what I needed to find.  I am only trying to change the heading in one report, at least for now.

    Thank you both!!
