we have an inherited db that is being migrated in several phases.
it would be best to define a set of synonyms (aliases) so that the new names could be used in new queries/scripts
and then eventually usage of the old (awful conventions were used) would be phased out.
is there a DEFINE (old_table_name, new_table_name) feature somewhere?
i think the answer is no (i've not been able to find anything)
