    Rename fields within an existing app without breaking objects?

      Hi,

       

      The app I started building when learning qlikview has become surprisingly useful, and moderately big.  Before I set it loose on my users, I want to go back and apply a better naming convention to my fields.  Is there any easy way to rename fields within an existing app such that the name change doesn't bust objects using that field? 

       

      In this case I'm thinking of chart and listbox objects, and especially bookmarks.

       

      If there's not an easy way to make the change, is there an easy way to find the objects using the fields?

       

      I'm guessing outputting to XML and doing a find/replace might work. - Christopher
