How to automatically update the binding references?

Hi, I got a form with lots of linked data to an xml file. Let say the author of the data file suddenly decides to change some field names. That results in me, the Designer document author to spend several minutes fixing the binding to the "new" xml nodes.

If the document is extensive enough, this taks can become a pain in the ass..

Is there any way to automatically tell Designer to use the new name or something?, or is this doable only through a macro using js?.

Thanks!.

(Also, since Im new to Designer, it would be nice if anyone could share some best practices about this, I'm sure I'm making lots of mistakes and wasting time caused by inexperience alone).

if you use the Action Builder to construct the JavaScript for you, it will track the field names for you automatically.
