How do you change the table (HFS) name after the survey has been created?

When you create a new survey, the table defaults to the Title.  If you go with the default first, and then want to change the table later it seems like you can't.  Is there a way to change the table name after you create a survey using defaults?

Currently you cannot rename the parent table of a survey directly.  What you could do is use the 'create a new survey' option of the survey to create a duplicate with the table name you want.  This is actually the safer option for this change- a table rename would require deletion of existing data on a republish if we supported it.

I did find that 'creating a new survey' does carry over the same table name while allowing you to update the survey name.  The solution I found was creating a new survey and naming the Survey and table correctly the first time, then copying the excel file from the old survey, pasting it in the new one, and renaming it to the new excel file name and deleting the old one with the same name.
