Hi,

I am working on MSSQL 2005

In my existing table I wanted to modify column tripdataID as an identity

I wrote query

ALTER TABLE trip_data ALTER COLUMN [tripdataID] INT IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL

It gives me error saying

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'IDENTITY'.

Please help me in fixing it

Many Thanks
