Update attribute table

Dear all,

I have renamed field values with my code which is shown in the figure below. The values are stored but if I reopen my attribute table, the same old values appear. It seems that the attribute table is only updated when I restart my project in ArcGIS. This is rather inefficient so I am trying to find either a function in ArcPY that updates my rows or whether there is a refresh table button.

It seemed there was a Reload cache button but I cannot seem to find it.

I am looking forward to your replies.

Kind regards,

Yeah, this is a problem. I ran into something similar last year.

Does it work to just remove and add the data back in? Maybe saving a layer file so you can just drag that in to check the updates without losing your formatting.

Caching can be frustrating. Sometimes you have to refresh the parent folder/gdb for it bring in the changes.  If there isn't a refresh option in the right click menu, check the burger menu after clicking on the item:
