How to: Rename Views (Visual Database Tools)
The name of a view cannot be changed but, rather, a new view must be created with the desired new name and the old view definition copied into the new view.
|If you rename a view, code and applications that depend on the view may fail. These include queries, views, stored procedures, user-defined functions, and client applications. Note that these failures will cascade. Carefully consider any name change before making it.|
