Do you mean the DBID in advanced properties or the table name visible to users.

the table name visible to users.  Notice in the photo, Table Name was changed from "Chat" to "messages" however above that, it still shows "chat settings". I have saved all settings, logged out/in, restart computer and it still hasn't updated over the weekend.

Hi Mkosek,

I would try updating the table name in the advanced settings header for the table. At the top of that page there is a place to change the name of the table and then under the Advanced Table Settings header on that page there is also an option to override the table name, if that override is set it will ignore any changes on that first table setting page.

Excellent, glad I could help. That particular setting is buried just a few layers deeper so it isn't one you notice at first glance.
