Column rename just quits

Refactor refuses to complete a column rename on a particular DB. - but table renames work fine.

I select the column - does not matter which one or type, and select Smart
rename. The dialog opens allowing me to choose the new name and when I click Next, the dialog 'thinks' for a couple of seconds and then closes.


Any ideas? Is there a Refactor log file somewhere on my machine to tell me what happened?

    I've contacted you via a private message. It could be a bug, which we will try to fix.

    I'm having the same problem. Smart Rename works on the Tables but nothing happens when I try to rename a column.

    Also, if the table or view has any extended properties, the script fails.

    Hi, is there a hotfix or something for this? I'm having the same problem (SQL Refactor just quits upon column SmartRename attempt).

    Thanks,

    Mike
