Last week I had imported some shapefiles into file geodatabase. It makes sense but when I checked table of the outputs I had found that some integer field names had been changed to other names. For example original name is 2010 changed to F1.

Please help.


Field Names Can't start with a number
• Eliminate any characters that are not alphanumeric character or an underscore.
• Do not start field or table names with an underscore or a number.
• It is necessary to edit the field names in delimited text files to remove unsupported characters before using them.
