The attached code returns:

Unclosed quotation mark after the character string 'ALTER COLUMN expanded [varchar(1024)]'.

web_site.expanded is currently a varchar(10), I want to be able to convert it to varchar(1024). The column doesn't contain any data at the time I'm trying to do this. Thanks!
ALTER TABLE web_site [ALTER COLUMN expanded [varchar(1024)]]

it is good to use two part name like schemaname.tablename, assuming your schema is DBO.

ALTER TABLE dbo.web_site
ALTER COLUMN dbo.web_site.expanded varchar(1024)
