    Use theSearch Toolbar, set the list for Highlight and Power / GND, put the "text to find" VCC_1 in the box and use the "Binos" to search. Select all of the items in the resulting list, left-click on the first entry and shift+left-click on the last, right-click>Edit Properties on the selected items. In that spreadsheet, locate the "Name" property, edit the first entry to change the name, select and copy (control+C) the value, left-click on the "Name" cell to select all the "Name" entries and paste (Control+V) to make the change, OK to close the spreadsheet.
