I have a table called person in my database. I want to add another column to the same table and it’s a Boolean datatype column. I have tried following queries but it says syntax error near default. I know this is a common and there are lot of answers. I have tried many of them and couldn’t figure out to make it work. So please help me.
queries I have tried
ALTER TABLE person add column "AdminApproved" BOOLEAN SET default FALSE; ALTER TABLE person alter column "AdminApproved" BOOLEAN SET default FALSE;
I have tried without SET key word too.
In SQL SERVER it is
BIT, though it allows
NULL to be stored
ALTER TABLE person add [AdminApproved] BIT default 'FALSE';
Also there are other mistakes in your query
When you alter a table to add column no need to mention
For adding default constraint no need to use
Default value for a
BITcolumn can be
('TRUE' or '1')/
('FALSE' or 0).
FALSEneeds to mentioned as
stringnot as Identifier
