Hi,

I am having problem running an SQL query in PhpMyAdmin and I am getting following error doing it.

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'NO NULL AFTER name' at line 1


any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks.
ALTER TABLE jos_users ADD business VARCHAR (100) NO NULL AFTER name;
 
ALTER TABLE jos_users ADD phone VARCHAR (100) NO NULL AFTER business;
