T-SQL script to rename table

Renaming a table is a simple task, however one thing most people miss is to find all table dependencies and replace the table in stored procedures/functions/views using that particular table. A T-SQL script to rename table is shown below

EXEC sp_rename 'Person.Address', 'Addresses';

The above query renames Person.Address to Addresses table. Refer to https://www.sqlservergeeks.com/find-dependencies-of-a-table-in-sql-server/  to find table dependencies and rename the table there too.

Any object can also be renamed using GUI. Navigate to the object to rename and click F2 to rename it.
