TSQL: Update the name of a column

Rename a column in an existing table with sp_rename.   Example below, just substitute values for schema, table, existingcolumnname and newcolumnname.   COLUMN keyword is fixed and does not need to be subsituted.


EXEC sp_rename 'schema.table.existingcolumnname','newcolumnname','COLUMN';
