Mysql – Error renaming a column in MySQL


How do I rename a column in table xyz? The columns are:

Manufacurerid, name, status, AI, PK, int

I want to rename to manufacturerid

I tried using PHPMyAdmin panel, but I get this error:

MySQL said: Documentation
#1025 - Error on rename of '.\shopping\#sql-c98_26' to '.\shopping\tblmanufacturer' (errno: 150)

Lone Ranger is very close... in fact, you also need to specify the datatype of the renamed column. For example:

ALTER TABLE `xyz` CHANGE `manufacurerid` `manufacturerid` INT;

Remember :

  • Replace INT with whatever your column data type is (REQUIRED)
  • Tilde/ Backtick (`) is optional
