    As far as I understand, use can use either "new name" column to rename a field.
    Select is for when you want to create a brand new layout for the output rows. If you want to rearrange the order of the fields, or only want three out of the fifteen fields.
    Remove is when you want to leave most of the fields alone but just delete a couple that you don't need anymore.
    Meta-Data is when you don't want to change the order or number of fields, you just want to rename some or change the data type of them.
