Hello,

I assume what you mean by "Title in qes and rec file" is what you
typed in .qes file from which .rec file was made. If so, you can
easily edit the "Title" in qes file as you want. Please be sure that
the field names and definitions are not changed. Then, revise the old
rec file with the newly edited qes file (by going to Tools --> revise
data file). By doing so, your data won't be harmed.

best regards,
