Changing User Names in WSS 3.0

  Asked By: Courtney    Date: Oct 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6445

We had someone get married and now needs her name changed in SharePoint.
I don't need to change the email address just the display name. I have
tried deleting the user id and adding it back in, but I cannot change
the display name... Can I do this in one of the SQL tables?

If you are importing the User Profile from Active Directory the name
should be change  there. Then the next time Users Profiles and Properties
are imported the name should be correct.

Can I import just this one user  profile or do I have

If you have referring to the user's Display Name in WSS, you must change
the Display Name for the user  in the User Info Gallery for each Site
Collection where the user has either been granted unique permissions or
an Active Directory Group or SharePoint Group has been granted
permissions and she has visited one of the sites in the Site Collection.
