How To Rename an Existing Table?

If you don't like the name of an existing table, you change it by using the CREATE TABLE ... RENAME TO statement. Here is a sample script:

SQL> connect HR/fyicenter
Connected.

SQL> CREATE TABLE emp_dept_10
  2  AS SELECT * FROM employees WHERE department_id=10;
Table created.

SQL> ALTER TABLE emp_dept_10 RENAME TO emp_dept_dba;
Table altered.

SQL> SELECT first_name, last_name, salary FROM emp_dept_dba;
FIRST_NAME           LAST_NAME                     SALARY
