Change User Logon Name in Active Directory

Hi There
as described in my attached file, I want to change the user logon name in Active Directory for Win2003 server, I noticed that I need to change the name from magasin to Magasin, I got some troubles related to case sensitive in my SQL Server DB logins and I don't want to recreate the account again.

When I changed the first letter from 'm' to 'M' this change will not be kept ....

Is there any manner to do this

Thanks

Rename the logon name twice: first to magasinX, then to Magasin.

Because the logon name isn't case sensitive as far as Windows is concerned. When you just change the case of the logon name, the GUI sees no real change and doesn't do anything.
Something similar happens when you try to change the case of an entry in the registry, btw; i nthis case, an error that an entry with that name already exists.
