Modifying Tests - Requires re-recording actions

I'm having a problem modifying my tests, in situations in which I have to re-record everything in order to get small changes to work.

E.g. I recorded myself importing a file into my tested application and created an automated test around this action, then recently the menu options changed so that the import option is now displayed under the 'file menu' instead of the 'insert menu'.

I changed one line of code to make the application press 'Alt+f' instead of 'Alt+e'.

You'd have thought this would be sufficient, but Test Complete will no longer run the script, so I have to re-record this action, and possibly other actions too in order to get it to work again.

Is there any way I can avoid having to do this?

Thanks in advance.
