How to Rename Table in SQL Server with an example? To demonstrate this, we use the below-shown Customer.
SQL Server Rename Table Name Example
There is a stored procedure called SP_RENAME to rename the table name. In this example, we will change the Customer using this sp. The syntax to use this sp_rename on the existing ones is as shown below.
SP_RENAME '[Old Name]', '[New TableName]'
We use the above sp_rename syntax to change the Customers to NewCustomers.

If you can access Management Studio, double-click on the SQL Server Table allows you to change the name. Let me change the name to the CustomersTable
SSMS Approach 2
