As you've asked the question at the Forms forum, I believe it really is related to forms. If so, open this item's Property Palette and change "Prompt" property to something different (i.e. overtype 'cust' to 'Customer ID').

to rename a column name permanently we have alter table command

syntax: alter table <table name> rename <column name> to <new col name>

ex: alter table emp rename ename to emp_name
