Relocated material database not working

I am attempting to update the standard Solidworks material database because all of the material names are lowercase characters.  So I copied the file (solidworks materials.sldmat) from the root directory to a new location. Then I opened it in notepad, selected on "edit", "replace" and next to the "find what" box, I typed in "Plain Carbon Steel" and replaced it with "PLAIN CARBON STEEL".  I saved the file, made sure my material database file locations were correct in the System Options and did a sample drawing with a BOM.  The material callout for plain carbon steel is still the same.  Is there something else that needs to change?
