In ArcGIS Pro, like the tool "Table do Domain", who create a domain with a table like this :

CODE | VALUE

01        | value number one

02        | value number two

it would be great if a tool "Table to Alias" can exist to fill the alias in the data table of a feature (Feature Layer/Data/Fields)

When we have a CSV to geolocate, and a dictionary file who explain the field, we should use the dictionary file to fill the alias of the feature geolocate from the CSV.

exemple:

CSV table :

FIELD1;FIELD2,FIELD3

95014;Andilly;4512

95028;Attainville;2732

Dictionary file:

NAME    |  LABEL

FIELD1  |   Postal code

FIELD2  | City name

FIELD3   |  Population

we should use the table "dictionnary" to fill the alias of the feature create from CSV.

A fairly easy model iterating over fields calling the Alter Field tool could achieve this.

yes, but one by one...

the idea is to alter all the fields in one move, from a list:

FIELD1 - LABEL 1

FIELD2 - LABEL 2

.....

FIELD 150 - LABEL 150

and not alter 150 fields manually.
