How to: Rename Companies
You can rename companies in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. You can also rename companies by using the Rename-NAVCompany Windows PowerShell cmdlet.
Before you rename a company, you should make sure that you are the only user who has access to the company. This is optional but recommended because it prevents others from making changes to the database while you are renaming it, which could cause problems.
