The field name does not change though - instead the info in the box that says what kind of info to input changes.
Could you elaborate on this? Once you hit the change button, it should change it.
The field name changes in the edit box. I thought this would change the name next to the field where I am inputting data in the data base. Instead it changes the info in the field itself in layout mode which tells the type of info to put in the box.
Oh you are talking about hte Field Label. The Default Label is the same as the field name and will change if you change the field name.
However, once that field label has been modified at all, it will no longer change when the field name changes and you will have to manually go to the layout in layout mode and change the label. Basically think of it as an override.
Thank you. I did not know that was a label. I could not find anything that said how to change the label, but I right clicked on the label and then double left clicked on it and was able to change it.
