I am very happy with BookVars. When I go to create a new folder for a book/part of a book, the first thing I do is create the book file. The *second* thing I do is create the BookVars file.

I guess I was not quite clear about what I am trying to accomplish. I succeeded in changing the variable name, but the problem comes in replicating the change across about 50 chapters in four books. I can copy the newly-renamed variable into the chapter, but all the existing variables still have their old names. I am anxious about the copy-and-paste method for the reasons Rebecca mentioned. My example was a formatted variable, but I actually use many variables, some formatted and some not. Because I use so many variables, I am looking into Leximation's Bookvars today. It looks like just the tool I need!
