Subj:   Re: Alter the column without dropping the table and column
From:   Mani,vijay

Hi Laxmi Kantha,

We can try rock and roll method.

1- That is rename the current table name to some other name.

2- Crete a new table with the new datatype

3- Then insert the record from the renamed table to the new table

4- Do an Select minus select to ensure the data is correct.
