adding a field to mysql

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have an existing database. I can access it most easily with myphpadmin but i can also access it through the command line client. It has 2 tables. I was wondering whether I can add another field to the database. Will that create a problem for the existing records since they don't have an entry for the new field?
