Here is a rename function:

Function RenameTableOK(CN As ADODB.Connection, Oldname As String, NewName As String)

' Renames a SQL Server Table
' Example:
'Dim Ok
'Dim CN As ADODB.Connection
'Set CN = New ADODB.Connection
'CN.ConnectionString = "...."
'CN.Open
'Ok = ADO.ReanameTableOK(CN, "MyOldTableName", "MyNewTanleName")

Dim SQL As String
Dim Ok

SQL = "EXEC sp_rename '" + Oldname + "', '" + NewName + "'"

On Error Resume Next
CN.Execute SQL
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    RenameTableOK = False
Else
    RenameTableOK = True
End If

End Function

inthedark is right. The SP to rename a table is sp_rename (and not sp_renameDB like I told).
