ArcGIS Pro could use existing field names

    Like ArcMap before it, ArcGIS Pro would be helpful if it would try to name fields based on the field name in the data source when importing to its geodatabase structure.  For example, import multiple tables from Excel 2016 XLSX sheets, and the imported tables get fields unhelpfully named like:

    • Field1
    • Field2
    • etc.

    ...when the input sheets had a header row with fields named like:

    • UniqueID
    • EntryDate
    • etc.

     

    just a thought.
