Renaming table layouts

You can rename a table layout whenever necessary. Renaming a table layout does not rename the associated data file. You cannot rename a table layout if the table is currently open.


If you rename a table layout that is referenced in an ACL script you must also update all references to the table in the script or the script will fail when it is run.

To rename a table layout:

  1. If the table you want to rename is open, close it.
  2. In the Overview tab, right-click the table layout and select Rename.
  3. Type a new name for the table layout and press Enter.

    Table layout names are limited to 31 alphanumeric characters. The name can include the underscore character ( _ ), but no other special characters, or any spaces. The name cannot start with a number.
