Simple rename causes errors typically.  How do I safely rename access 2010 objects in general, without causing errors?

Joe,

You don't own stock in Find & Replace, do you ?

;-)

rtod2:  Gotta say that I agree with MX, Find & Replace is a great tool, although i've not tried it with Access 2010.

Hey, it's a wonderful tool.  ~$35 well spent.

It's saved my posterior a few times :)

lol ... it's not a public company.  It's Rick Fisher.  I've beta tested most versions for him.  A2010 version works just fine.

And there are many not so obvious subtle features that are VERY cool.  

Basically, @ $37 ... for all practical purposes .... it's free.

Joe,

Don't get me wrong, I use it too.  I used to use Speed Ferret in days gone by, but they never upgraded from 2000 to 2003 and then I found Find & Replace which was way cheaper and a better tool overall.

no problem here.

Speedy Ferret was pale in comparison to F&R.

Only saving grace of Speed Ferrett was that it worked with SQL Server and other databases.
