This example demonstrates how to rename the store procedure using Transact-SQL. Using sp_rename system procedure, you can rename the store procedure.



Step 1: I have created a store procedure with named testing as shown below.


Step2:  Use SP_HELPTEXT system procedure to see the store procedure as shown below.


Step 3: I have renamed the store procedure by using build in system store procedure named “SP_RENAME” as shown in figure.

The above query will rename the store procedure from testing to xp_testing.

Step 4: Let us, again used the SP_HELPTEXT to see the xp_testing store procedure as shown below.



In the above example, you have seen that we have renamed the store procedure from testing to xp_testing.  In fact, this will change the store procedure name but it will not update in the system procedure table, so I will not prefer to use sp_rename to rename the user define procedure, you must have to delete the store procedure and re-create it with new name.


Note: I will recommend you that do not use the sp_rename to rename the store procedure, first drop the store procedure and then recreate the store procedure with name name.
