Change a data set name through all the flow

Hi everyone,

I would like to change the data set name through all my process flow without needing to open each task boxes and change the data set name each time (Idem for the code boxes).

Actually, the correspondent of a "find and replace" but for an .egp :-)

Is there a way to do this fastly?

Thanks in advance for your answer!

Re: Change a data set name through all the flow

There is a tool for changing server references.

Aside from that, I think that this must be done proactively, like creating a temporary data set in step 1 and then use that throughout the project, so you only need to change step 1.

Or use a macro variable.
