Sometimes we wanted to add an extra column after the creation of the table. SQL Server provides the query to add a new column in the old table with the desired data type.

Alter table statement is used to modify, add and drop a column from the table.

Let's see how we can do it.

Add a column in the table

alter table student add Std_Address varchar(500)

Add multiple columns to the table

alter table student add PinCode varchar(6),
Phone_No varchar(20)  

Alter column datatype

alter table student alter column PinCode varchar(8)

Rename column name using SQL query


EXEC sp_rename 'old_name', 'new_name' ['object_type'];


EXEC sp_rename 'student.PinCode', 'Pin_Code', 'COLUMN';

In this tutorial, we have learned how we can alter the table to add multiple columns and rename the column name.
