Hello-

I need the proper syntax to add a field to an existing mySQL table in C#/.NET 3.5 SP1. I have tried ALTER TABLE and UPDATE TABLE but I apparently don't have the proper syntax. So, for a table I created thusly,

            private void To6_2_0() {
                  if(FromVersion<new Version("6.2.0.0")) {
                        string command;
                        if(DataConnection.DBtype==DatabaseType.MySql) {

                    command = "DROP TABLE IF EXISTS anesthmedsintake";
                    General.NonQ(command);
                    command = @"CREATE TABLE anesthmedsintake(
                                    AnestheticMedNum int(3) NOT NULL auto_increment,
                                    IntakeDate datetime NOT NULL,
                                    AnestheticMed char (20) NOT NULL,
                                    DEASchedule char(2),
                                    Qty int(6) NOT NULL,
                                    SupplierIDNum char(11) NOT NULL,
                                    InvoiceNum char(20) NOT NULL,
                                    PRIMARY KEY (AnestheticMedNum)
                                    ) DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8";
                    General.NonQ(command);

What would the proper command later on if I want to add a new field to this table?

Thanks

but it appears that C# doesn't allow the changing of a table structure as from this forum...so you would have to probably alter from your stored procedure

but it appears that C# doesn't allow the changing of a table structure as from this forum...so you would have to probably alter from your stored procedure based on the number of Field Parameters...i.e. use something like in stored procedure like if columns less than the parameter string list that passed in, alter table to include new field name(s)...

OK, NVM I found it. This works:

      string[] commands = new string[]
                        {
                              "ALTER table userod ADD AnesthProvType int(2) NOT NULL"
                              
                        };
                    General.NonQ(commands);
                        }
I'll give partial points to silemone for pointing me in the right direction...
