Rename Schedules Without Renaming Schedules Names

Thanks to Brad Beal for this tip. 

Today an engineer wanted to have several space schedules have the same name on the sheets even though the schedules were for individual areas of the building, and he wanted to maintain the original schedule names in the Project Browser (Mine is not to phantom why).

There is a great function for this with plan views, but it does not apply to schedule views. My buddy Heath suggested not showing the header at all and grouping all the header cells then typing the common name in. This works but, it is cumbersome.

Then Brad suggested that we just use the Clear Cell tool shown when clicking in the header cell.

Then just type whatever you want in the cell. The result was just what was wanted with about zero fuss.
