VS Team Edition for Database Professionals: DB Rename Refactoring

Database Rename Refactoring is a method of performing cascading updates to database schema.

This allows you to make a change to the name of any object in the database schema (i.e. a Table, Column, Stored Procedure etc) and have that change made everywhere that object is referenced in the database schema, without the need to look for the affected parts of your entire DB schema.
