SQL question : changing the string size of a column

I have a table that is already created and filled with data. One of the column is a VARCHAR(20)
and I'd like to change it now to something bigger VARCHAR(300).
What is the SQL command to do it ??

This is how it's done in Oracle:
alter table your_table modify the_column varchar2(300);
Normal is in the eye of the beholder
I agree. Here's the link:
