Description boicottms 2016-02-13 17:47:25 UTC
When I change a field's or a table's name, an existing form is not updated, so its fields have to be edited one by one or re-created.
Strangely enough, the labels created with the wizard are updated.
To reproduce:
1. create a table with some fields
2. create a form with the wizard with all the fields
3. change the name of the table or some of the fields
4. the form labels are updated, not the fileds queries.
I would expect every reference to the updated name shall update to keep things working.

Yep, it says "The data content could not be loaded. There exists no table named "Tasks"." after I changed the table named and tried to open the form.

This never worked as expected here. There isn't defined a reference like: if you change this, change also the other name. References, like they are defined for a database, won't let you change the name of a table, where a reference is made to.

The wished behavior is an ask for an enhancement. So I will change the importance to this.
