I started my new form with default name of "Form 6".  I finished designing the form.  Now I need to rename the Form from "Form 6"  to "NF-79 Procedure Review" including form name, title,  and also all form files.  The problem now is to rename all form files such as *.gpkg,  *.info, *.iteminfo etc.  I renamed all files to from Form 6 name to new form name but some files went back to form 6.  This is where I need help:  is there a way to rename all Form files from "Form 6.*"  to "NF-79 Procedure Review.*" ?    Thanks for your help.

I have found once you get it wrong the first time forget it and start over.  There may be a way just not worth it.

The trick is to create a new survey from file then make sure to set the name right away before hitting create.

Then copy over any media files manually.  Works for me.

Doug,

Thank for your response.  I have read one similar suggestion from one Esri person on starting a new form from existing Form Excel to get all names right.  I may have to go this route if I cannot find other solution.
