The custom field name isn't as informative as a column heading in a table

You can change the title that appears in a column heading by clicking the heading and typing text for the heading in the title box. For example, you might use a title such as Overhead Cost instead of Cost1 in the column heading. Changing the title in this way affects the heading only in that table. If you include the Cost1 field in another table, the column heading reverts to the field name.

You can create an alias for a custom field so the alias appears instead of the field name each time you use the field. In the Customize Fields dialog box, click Rename. Enter a descriptive name for the field. The alias and the original field name both appear in field lists.
