When making changes to form names, one must be aware that implementing these changes will not automatically be applied to the methods and formulas that used the original names. Therefore, when making this type of change, one can use the find feature in 4D 2004 to conduct a search for all objects containing the old form names. Once you have list of objects, then one can start applying the name change to each of the objects.
