ALTER TABLE: insert a field and specify location of new field

I have an existing table with several fields.  I want to alter the table to insert a new field in a specific location, say, after the third existing field.  Is there a way to specify on the add where the new field is put?  Thanks.

Hi rsoble,

no, unless you drop the whole table and recreate

Cheers!
