Renaming Datasets

When you open a data source through the menus and dialog boxes, each data source is automatically assigned a dataset name of DataSetn, where n is a sequential integer value, and when you open a data source using command syntax, no dataset name is assigned unless you explicitly specify one with DATASET NAME . To provide more descriptive dataset names:

  1. From the menus in the Data Editor window for the dataset whose name you want to change choose:

    File > Rename Dataset...

  2. Enter a new dataset name that conforms to variable naming rules. See the topic Variable names for more information.
