Awkward syntax for altering the column comments

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Current syntax for altering the column comment is highly error prone, since you need to re-declare the data type.

      It would be nice to have below:

      ALTER TABLE 'myTable' ALTER COLUMN `myField` ADD COMMENT 'a comment'
      

      Instead of:

      ALTER TABLE `myTable` CHANGE `myField` `myField` varchar(20) NOT NULL COMMENT 'my comment'
