hi,

open your query in query designer and use button 'save as' then you can change name description.

Remember that when you change technical name it will be completely new query and you will have to add it to your role.

Thanks for the reply. I need to change the description of a query which is stored in a role. If i try saveas, as you said it will create new copy but i can not use the same technical name since one already exists.

Please advice.

Hi Ajay,

When you do a Save as for a query ..a new query is created which will have a different technical name and description..

If you just want to change the description of the query and have the same technical name, you could do it in query properties.

You can also change the description that you see in the role using the suim transaction. Look at the menu for that role, right click and choose change node.
