Label instead of variable name in SAS VA 7.3 List Table

Is it possible to display a Label instead of a variable name in a SAS VA 7.3 List Table?

I know how to do this in base sas but need to do it in a SAS VA 7.3 report, in Report Designer.

Re: Label instead of variable name in SAS VA 7.3 List Table

I wanted to avoid renaming the measures because I had calculated items, custom categories, display rules, and a parameter based button bar that were built with the original measure names. 

I found that renaming was not as much of a hassle as I had feared. 

I had to redo the custom categories and calculated items, but the display rules, which were the heaviest lift in my report, automatically reset and used the new names, so that was a relief.

Unfortunately no labels exist in SAS VA. You could duplicate the variable in SAS VA and change the name.
