By default, after an object (such as a database or table) is synchronized from the source instance to the destination instance, the name of the object remains unchanged. You can use the object name mapping feature provided by Data Transmission Service (DTS) to rename the object in the destination instance.
You can rename an object only in the Select Object to Be Synchronized step when you configure a data synchronization task.
We recommend that you do not rename objects after the data synchronization task is started. Otherwise, the task may fail.
In the Select Object to Be Synchronized step, move the required objects to the Selected section, move the pointer over a database or table, and then click Edit.Note
Different database types support different objects. If Edit appears when you move the pointer over an object, you can rename the object.
In the dialog box that appears, specify a name for the object in the destination instance.
Database name mapping
In the Edit Database Name dialog box, enter the database name that you want to use in the destination instance.
Table name mapping
In the Edit Table dialog box, enter the table name that you want to use in the destination instance.
Column name mapping
In the Edit Table dialog box, enter a new name for each column.Note
In this step, you can clear the columns that do not need to be synchronized.
Configure other parameters that are required for the data synchronization task.
