Help sending mass ref. designator change to Layout...

I used a script to change almost all of the reference designators in Logic (after the board had already been laid out) and everytime I try to "ECO to PCB" and "NETLIST TO PCB", the parts lose their association and revert to the origin of layout (I understand that this is not a bug). Is there a way to make is so the ref. designators are just changed while preserving the layout side of the board? For example, if I change R1 to R1A, is there any way to have the Layout update to R1A while preserving the position on the board (keeping its association)?
