Afternoon,

What is the best way of understanding where a field is being used ? e.g. If I need to rename a field in a table, I assume any reports that use it will fail ? and how do I understand if it is being referenced in any flow fields and/or code units etc...etc..

    I can also recommend the NAV Module Object Manager: https://www.idyn.nl/products/nav-development/object-manager-advanced

    Great tool not only for where-used, but also code analysis in general, as well as source code management.
