SQLServer 6.5 - How do I rename a database

greenspun.com : LUSENET : SQL Server Database Administration : One Thread

I am reducing the size of a database using 'Transfer Objects' into a new smaller database. I would like to retain the original database with a new name and create the smaller db with the original name. Can this be easily done ?

Have you considered using sp_renamedb?

Hope this helps,

Many thanks - I am a novice on SQLServer and the Microsoft Administrators Companion makes no mention of this stored procedure!
