Rename a global or user-defined column

If the name of a global column or user-defined column is unsuitable, you can rename it in the column pool without affecting any of the table models using that column.

Important If a column is renamed in the column pool, that name change is propagated to any table model using that column. There is no need to go and update the table model because it is automatically updated.

You can rename a global or user-defined column by following these steps:

  1. On the Project tab, in the Configuration group, select Project Settings Project Settings icon.
  2. Click the Tables tab to view the table settings.
  3. In the Column Pool group, double-click the column to rename.

    The Translations Window is displayed.

  4. Enter a name for the column into the Default field and click OK.

    The column name is updated in the column pool.

  5. Optionally, click OK to close the Project Settings window.
  6. Save the changes to your project.
