I want to copy a table in my SQL server from one database to another. during this migration, I also want to change the name of the columns. Please advise me how to go about it.

Try something like :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. select column1 as newcolumn1, column2 as newcolumn2, column3 as newcolumn3  into db2..table2
  2. from db1..table1
