Hello

Is there a possibility to rename a table, using the DAO objects ?

Or, is there another possibility ?

Waiting for your answer soon,

Thanks,

What database are you speaking of?
If you have SQL Server, yes.
You execute the stored procedure using the DAO Connection object
EXEC sp_rename 'oldname', 'newname'

I don't understand.

I'm working with Access, and using the recordset, database and workspace objects.

If you are inside an Access Module,
then do the following code:
Application.CurrentDb.TableDefs("Table1").Name = "Table2"
