Issue Details

When opening an old project, I can change the signal name under the DAQmx Acquire, but I can't change the channel name under the step setup. 


The channel name was probably created and imported from NI MAX. You will need to change those channels names from the NI MAX task. After saving the task configuration, you will need to import the task to Signal Express for the changes to be reflected.
