Changing the name of a module, record, table or process to coincide with the 'new' naming standards is easy by using the following procedure. The naming standards are listed in the Standards and Procedures manual.
Remember to change all dialogs and batch programs which may use the item's new name as at the time of migration the old name is no longer on production. A problem can occur when a lower level dialog's work record is changed to meet the new naming standards, but the higher level dialogs that pass values down are not changed. The problem can be compounded if a cross reference of the old name with the new does not exist. By documenting the old name in the COMMENTS section of the new name, there is an audit trail which otherwise may be lost. As problems occured due to a lack of audit trail, this procedure is to be implemented as a standard.
