In this blog I will show you how to rename a column name in sql. The syntax for renaming the column is
@objname = 'table_name.old_column_name',
@newname = 'new_column_name',
@objtype = 'COLUMN'
According to the msdn:
"sp_rename" Changes the name of a user-created object in the current database. This object can be a table, index, column, alias data type, or Microsoft .NET Framework common language runtime (CLR) user-defined type.
Below is the sample script which will explain you how to rename a column name .
IF EXISTS ( SELECT *
WHERE OBJECT_ID = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[TEST_COLUMNRENAME_TABLE]')
AND OBJECTPROPERTY(OBJECT_ID, N'IsUserTable') = 1 )
DROP TABLE [DBO].[TEST_COLUMNRENAME_TABLE]
CREATE TABLE TEST_COLUMNRENAME_TABLE
INSERT INTO [TEST_COLUMNRENAME_TABLE]
--NOW WE WILL CHANGE THE NAME OF COLUMN [FIRSTNAME] TO [LASTNAME]
EXEC SP_RENAME @objname = 'TEST_COLUMNRENAME_TABLE.FIRSTNAME',
@newname = 'LASTNAME', @objtype = 'COLUMN'
So from the output as you have seen the column name has been renamed.
