Dear All,
 
I have a query about changing the column names of a table.
 
The table column has a names like F1,F2 etc. The actual names are in the first row of the table.
 
This happens because i imported a excel file into sql which has first row as a header.
 
so i want to change the column names like F1=Exchange,F2=Stock etc.
 
Is this possible to change all the columns name in one query?
 
Thanks & Regards.
