Renaming Database Name Identifiers

To change the identifier of an existing database name, use the DataGate Studio Rename Object command on the DataGate menu, or the Rename command on the context menu of the database name node in DataGate Explorer. You can also modify the connection properties of a database name, with the Edit Properties command.

  1. Select DataGate Explorer from the DataGate menu. The DataGate Explorer tool window will display.
  2. Expand Local Database Names and select the database name node under it to be renamed.
  3. Select the Rename Object command on the DataGate menu. Alternatively, rightclick the database name node to display its context menu, and select Rename.
  4. The text of the database name node (the identifier) will become editable. Change the text to the desired database name identifer.

Note that a third method of renaming the database name is to select the node, pause, and then click on the name. The text of the database name node will enter edit mode.
