Change Field Names


I'm trying to port a lot of reports (around 200, but multiplied by 100 because many customer DBs that have a little customised reports) to a new DB. The new DB is very similar to the old DB, but it has different field names (type of data is still the same).

I came up with the idea of some type of converting tool that would change the DB names. I will prepare a list of source and target names.

Is technically possible to load a report, change the Fieldnames (also in script and calculated) in the report and save it back? I know there will be some fields that will not convert, but my hope is to ger 90% of the reports converted, the rest will be done by hand.
