RE: adding col in between....

... and the counter question is: why would you ever want to do this?
this is highly un-relational, because column ordering is supposed to be
meaningless.
well, let me answer your question anyway: in Oracle, there is no direct way to
accomplish this.
check out the DBMS_REDEFINITION package -- that will do the job for you, if you
insist :-)


cheers,

Lex.

Subject: adding col in between....


hi all,
 
Is it possible to add a new column in the between of table. For ex. Say there is
a table as
 
col position              col name
1                               ID
2                               Name
3                               Address
 
I have to add a col. after NAME col and before ADDRESS col. Is it possible ? how
?
 
TIA
