well mysql won't change it like this !!
Btw
- do anyone other than you have access to it?
- what operations you do with table? Do you load some dumps or restore from somewhere?

You can check binary logs to see if there is any alter table syntaxes logged!

Execute below queries on mysql prompt:
show global variables like 'log%bin';
show global variables like 'datadir';

If 1st returns ON, that means you've binary logs enabled. goto your data-directory at path specified by above query.
on system prompt execute:
mysqlbinlog binlogfilename > tempfile.txt

I want little more help.

I am trying to set the binary logging by making changes to my.cnf file as follows

log_bin=mysql_bin
server_id=10

After that I have restarted the server and I have executed the following command.

show global variables like 'log%bin';

But the out put is OFF.

Then how to start the binary logging.

Check above links for variable names.  [http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/replication-options-binary-log.html]
use log-bin.

Now the binary logging is enabled.
But I am unable to view the content of the binary file using the mysqlbinlog utility.

The name of the binary log file is mysql-bin.000001

when I am running the mysqlbinlog utility to view the content of the binary log file. It is throwing sql syntax error. I am not finding any solution.

I am using it following way.

mysqlbinlog mysql-bin.000001; -----not working.

mysqlbinlog mysql-bin.000001 > a.txt;

both are not working  and giving the error as follows

ERROR 1064(42000) : you have an error in sql syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your mysql server version for the right syntax to use near
mysqlbinlog mysql-bin.000001.
