Experts,

Is there any way of changing the logical filename of all files in a SQL Server 2005 database.

I'm using SQL Server 2005 Express and the Management Studio Express.

Thanks

That worked like charm.  I also found afterwards it's also very easy to just do it through Management Studio Express.  Always good to know the code as well.  Thanks
