Inserting Column With Stored Procedure

Hello:

I want to thank all that reply.

I don't know the correct syntax to insert a column in an SQL database table with these parameters. I need it to be a MONEY field and I need a default value of 0(Zero). Can someone point me in the right direction.

Code:
ALTER TABLE myTable ADD 
myMoneyCol MONEY
DEFAULT 0


Not so bad, huh?

But you won't be able to pass a parameter in as the name of the column, which means you will have build the SQL Statement into a string and execute it using dynamic SQL.

Code:
DECLARE @SQL nvarchar(500)
DECLARE @myMoneyCol nvarchar(50)

SET @myMoneyCol = 'MoneyColNo1'

SET @SQL = 'ALTER TABLE myTable ADD '+@myMoneyCol+' MONEY
DEFAULT 0'
EXEC(@SQL)


Now you're adding security and performance issues. I would doublecheck to make sure adding a column on the fly is the best solution for what you're trying to do.
