AF Guid Dependencies

Hi Everyone,

 

I have a project that I'm working on where the AF data is deleted then recreated using an XML import. New Guids are created during the imports, which is intended behavior as pointed out in this post:

My question is, lets say I have an element named x, each time I do a delete/import, the Guid changes for this element. Will this present a problem for any product that is using this element, like Processbook, Coresight, Datalink, or Webparts? The element name does not change, just the Guid.

 

Thanks,

 

Lonnie
