Updating column name in sql

Rated 3.80/5 based on 954 customer reviews

In this scenario, the sp will start throwing error post the column rename.To avoid such issues, Sql server alerts us by returning the warning when we use SP_RENAME.

The UPDATE statement can’t pick a winner between the two instructions because they execute at the same time.

However, as mentioned above, there are simpler database specific methods if you know which database you need to modify ahead of time.

This was implemented before the SQL standard addressed the issue - if it is addressed in the SQL standard. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).

As you can see from the above screenshot, it is throwing an error.

If I wish to simply rename a column (not change its type or constraints, just its name) in an SQL database using SQL, how do I do that? This is for any database claiming to support SQL, I'm simply looking for an SQL-specific query that will work regardless of actual database implementation.
