Title: How can I change the attribute name on the logical side without impacting the physical name for a non-Reverse Engineered model?
There is a link between the Logical model to the Physical model for a Non-Reverse Engineered model. That is as designed. In order to keep column names from changing, you can use the name hardening functionality by taking the following steps:
Note: In a Reverse Engineered model, the logical and physical models are not linked. However, in a non-Reverse Engineered model, the physical name is generated by the %AttName macro (by default), that's why when you change the logical attribute name; ERwin will change the corresponding column name in the physical model.
