Found a bug in SQL Prompt

Not sure if this is fixed in 6.3 but. If you rename a database field that is mentioned in an UPDATE() statement in a trigger, the field is not renamed correctly. Note this is the UPDATE([Fieldname]) syntax that returns true if a field has been updated, not the UPDATE SET [Fieldname] = xyz syntax for performing a database update.

For example, rename a field [Alpha] to [Alpha123]. In an Update trigger for the table containing this field is the statement:

IF UPDATE([Alpha])
do some SQL stuff

This is checking to see if [Alpha] has been modified by the table update and of course it should be changed to IF UPDATE([Alpha123]) ... but it isn't and thus it causes the smart rename transaction to fail. Other references to [Alpha] within the trigger procedure are renamed correctly, looks like Prompt needs to check within an UPDATE() statement.

Hope this helps

    We've managed to reproduce this here (it looks like it's not being recognised as a dependency).
