I incorrectly ran sp_rename in the following manner:

sp_rename 'Schema.Table', 'Schema.Table2'

Now the table is no longer accessible. It shows up in sysobjects as Schema.Table2 in the "name" column. I know I shouldn't have included the Schema name in the second part of the rename, but now that I have, it's inaccessible. Is there a way that I can repair my mistake. I've tried doing:

sp_rename 'Schema.Table2', 'Table', 'object'

But I get there error:

Either the parameter @objname is ambiguous or the claimed @objtype (object) is wrong.

Everything is in a schema. Likely it was in the dbo schema, so change it back to that one.

ok this was kewl to know;
once you doink up an object name so it has a dot in it, you need your brackets around the object, and it was easier for me to visualize with three part naming convensions to undo the damage;



CREATE SCHEMA bob
GO
CREATE TABLE bob.Test (
testid int,stuff varchar(50) )
GO
exec sp_rename 'bob.Test', 'bob.Test2' --created bob.[bob.Test2]

--try to fix, this fails no object found:
exec sp_rename 'bob.bob.Test2'

--works, due to brackets
exec sp_rename 'bob.[bob.Test2]'
--select from the object with 3 part naming:
select * from [SandBox].[bob].[bob.Test2]
--rename the object successfully
exec sp_rename '[SandBox].[bob].[bob.Test2]','Test2'

Perfect Lowell. That's exactly what I was looking for. I kept trying various things, but didn't think to fully qualify it.

Thanks,
