Description françois dambrine 2019-10-08 11:29:53 UTC
When I generate descriptive statistics of one of my data set the result sets "1 Column", "2 Column" (or its localized equivalent as I often work in French GUI) instead of my column labels.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a data set on column A, A1 cell is the data set label/name
2. select column A
3. in Data/statistics select "descriptive statistics", enter a target cell and validate

Actual Results:
The label for my column is "1 Column" (or "1 Colonne" in french language)

Expected Results:
The label for my column is A1 cell content

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
