Problems changing file name

I initially started my drawings with a B in the Drawing number. EX. 01-B-001. Then i was told to exchange the B for a D. I use the drawing number as the file name. When i changed the file name to match the drawing number, things went nuts. When i open the drawing none of the tags i have for the equipment and instruments show up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you rename the drawing using the file manager? You can open up the
original drawings using the Project Manager and use Save As. Then
right-click the drawing node and select the "Update Drawing..." option. A
file dialog will be presented where you can select the created via Save As.
The alternative is to remove the drawing from the project, rename using file
exporer, and then add the drawing (with new name) back.

Does renaming the drawing back to original name first fix the nutty things
that happened when you opened it?
