How to change the name of multiple dataset names, single or in bulk

Hi

 

Due to a recent issue we have uncovered where AWC 3.1 cannot download datasets that contain special characters, does anybody know of a method for us to change the name of datasets to remove the special characters?

 

We have over 1000 to do. They are all in a Released status.

Can we change the underlying dataset object name?  (Visible name vs object name)

 

Many thanks, N

You might be able to use:
install -find_control_chars infodba infodba dba WorkspaceObject object_name

And:
install -replace_control_chars infodba infodba dba WorkspaceObject object_name 07 ““

Using the Hex code of the illegal char. It's a little tedious providing Object/Attribute pairs one-by-one but it works.
