Subj:   Increase a column length
 
From:   JAMES PARK

A column of a table is defined as CHAR(40)

Can I increase the length with this command?

     alter table dbname.tbname
     add columname CHAR(50);

When I ran the command it failed.

I am thinking one way to do this is to create a new table with the new column and insert into the new table and drop the old table.
