Adding columns to tables in the correct place

Recommended Posts

Hi,
i want to add some columns to me table after other columns already exsistent in the table. I know the following command works:

alter table tablename add column columnname ... first;

This puts the column at the beginning of the table. How do i place it so its the third column in the table or so that it is after another column??
Thanks.
