Rename a Cycle Group

I often use Rob Wunderlich’s excellent Copy Groups utility to copy cycle groups from one QlikView document to another; or to copy a cycle group from a document back into the same document to make a duplicate (to see the utility and get your own copy, search on ”QlikView Cookbook Copy Groups Utility”). But, sometimes after copying the cycle group, the name of the group may not be ideal.

Author's note:  I removed the rest of this post after seeing Andre's comment. Thanks, Andre - that was something I didn't know... and it's much simpler than what I wrote.

Portion of Andre's comment:

A group can be renamed by going to Document Properties | Groups | Select Group | Edit | Enter New Name | OK

This changes where the group is used in a chart dimension as well
