    Since you've only shown us the output, we can only guess as to the cause.
    Pasting images here really isn't all that helpful, because they get resized, and become unreadable.

    Post the actual transform, and we might have more insight.

    My initial guess is that you're adding the Exp_Name in the Add Constant step, which does exactly what it says it does... Adds a constant value.

    Post your transform, and a sample input file (it doesn't need to be real data, just conforms to the real data requirements)
    There is NOTHING we can do with what you have provided so far.
