RENAME Field : Impact on Sheet Objects


I was under the impression that the benefit of RENAME FIELD X TO Y; was that any direct references to field X would be automatically changed upon script reload, e.g. if a chart dimension was X, it would now be Y.

When I run my script after a rename of an individual field the chart drops the dimension of X.

We had an idea to allow users to customize fields via a mapping load XLS and RENAME, but if sheet objects are "broken" in this fashion then the exercise seems futile in scope / impact.

Please let me know if this feature has an alternative ?
