    Assuming that you are using the Capture front-end, select the DSN, Edit>Browse>Off-Page Connectors, select the off-page connectors to rename, use left-click shift+left-click for a range control+left-click to select items, Edit>Properties, change the NAME property of the selected Connectors, OK. Select some more, if required.

     EMA has a useful script w/ a tutorial to replace net names.

     Not sure if you need an account, but here is the link:  http://support.ema-eda.com/download/LabFiles/Capture_Script_Files/replace_net_name.zip

    Best,

    hi tenny

    i have read your post "http://www.cadence.com/Community/forums/p/17594/1248024.aspx"

    have you find out how to replace the "off page connector name  " with the connected "net alias name".

    i modifyed many net alias name in batch with property editor .but the off-page connector name can not be modified .

    the most stupid method is manually modify one by one of the off page connector name ,corresponding to the net alias name.

    thanks

    kind regards!

    There are two generic methods - 

    a) Use menu Edit->Global Replace and select the Offpage connector option

    b) Use meu Accessories->Cadence Tcl/Tk Utilities->Find Replace Text - this allows regular expression text replacement on any of the selected object type. This is open source Tcl Code application - if you have a specific replacement algoirthm requirement the script may be modified.
