QV11 SR2 - Rename to existing field name is now Script Error

Using the RENAME statement to rename a field to an existing name was never allowed, but it used to fail silently.

It will now generate a script error with the message:

Error: New field name already exists!

In version 10 SR3 it works fine!

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

If it used to fail silently and you were happy for it to move on without performing the requested load statement before you can set ERRORMODE to 0 before the load and back to 1 after it.
