This question already has an answer here:

I successfully joined an attribute table to a shapefile using the method below.

enter image description here

But the new attribute table does not include the original column headers from the joined table. They've been replaced with something generic. See below.

enter image description here

Is there a way to keep the original column headers from the table that was joined?

  • I think this is related to the long name of the joined layer. Rename it to something shorter and retry the join. – Techie_Gus Dec 15 '17 at 16:37

    can't reproduce this behavior even though I use a very long name for the layer and also a custom prefix (Qgis 2.18.11 ). Please give more detail on your model, qgis version, share samples of your files etc. – Hugo Roussaffa - GeoDatup Dec 15 '17 at 16:52
