Reference Manual should clarify what ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN does

    Details

    • Type: Bug Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Minor Minor
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 10.9.1.0, 10.10.1.1
    • Fix Version/s: 10.9.2.2, 10.10.1.1
    • Component/s: Documentation

      Description

      The documentation should state explicitly that ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN adds the new column at the end of the table row. If you need to change a column (for example, to change its data type), the only way to do so is to drop the column and add a new one, and this changes the ordering of the columns.
