That makes no sense at all.

Do you mean you 'suddenly' want a new [b]column[/b] added to an [b]existing[/b] table?

If you mean to say what Andy writes, then yes, all old rows will have that new column as well.

Why would you want to do such a thing, anyway?

yes that is what I meant.

well i am designing a project management system and with project that big i am sure i might miss a few things here and there that i will need to fix while i am coding and it would be better if i could just add a column instead recreating the whole table.  also after the first release i plan to continue working on it and well new systems that i might add may require new column on existing tables
