This is because it may have multiple dependencies in triggers, SP-s, Foreign keys.
You can create new table, do an 'insert into ... select' statement, and that's all. If you want to, you can write an SP which will do this.

Subject: [firebird-support] Renaming tables in Firebird


What is the reason that renaming tables in Firebird is not possible by
a (single) statement like 'ALTER TABLE X RENAME TO Y'. Does it have a
technical reason and would it be hard to implement in the engine?

Kind regards,
