I am building a model but most of the time the field mapping I set while using the Append tool disappears. By disappear I mean after I set the field mapping the field mapping settings go back to default, as if I never set them. I can't seem to figure out why this is happening.

I am using Model Builder in ArcGIS Pro 2.2.0.

I haven't been able to find help online and was wonder if anyone else has experienced this or has a solution. Thank you.

Field mapping only sticks in the project your are working on.

The field mapping in the database is not changing.

Are you wanting to permanently re-order the fields?

Hi Robert, I am working in a Project and have all my source and target layers add in to the map. I have table joins on my source data which causes the field names to change and requires manual field mapping to match up with the correct fields in the target layer. I am not needing to permanently reorder the fields is just for the layers in my Project.
