This option cannot be used unless input values have already been defined for cylid or sectornum. For more information, see “Stored Input Values” on page 82.

Usage Notes  

RENAME makes a copy of the object in a new location. The original object remains in the original location.

The corresponding DBD or CID must be updated to reflect the new location of the object. This might involve deleting the DBD or CID which is pointing to the original copy of the object and creating a new DBD or CID to point to the object in its new location.
