Never rely on links to take you to the correct copy.  If you use it before the old icon is removed, it does the wrongthing.  Plus, there are osme cacheing issues.

Instead, send a button that does @Command([RenameDatabase]; ... ) -- works like a charm every time, unless the old database replica was open.

You asked a somewhat different question last time... it sounded as if you were asking, "can I check a user's workspace, find any and all icons that are not Toronot, remove the icon, and add the equivalent Toronto icon."  The asnwer to that was a resounding NO.

This is a more basic question, and here, my code suggestion might work.  That's because it isn't "searching" the workspace, it is look ing for a single specific file.

Of course, if the user already has the Toronto version of the icon on the workspace, then all Rename does is bring Toronto to the top of the stack.  If there is no Toronto icon, then it replaces teh current icon with the Toronto icon.
