Rename Field OldName From a Table to NewName

Hello,

As of today, you can rename a field easily with the instruction Rename.
Ex : Rename Field OldName to NewName;

However, it affects all the table. I just want to choose the table(s) where the field must be renamed. I lost two hours last week to wrote a qvs to turnaroud that and it implies a reloading of the data. Here a little illustration of my mood at the moment :

I really think that would help to simplify a lot of scripts.

Best regards,

Simon

Fyi, HIC has a nice write up on renaming fields:
