Hi All,

I want to add a new column named version with initial value 0 for all the tables present in a database. What can be done to do this?

Any help is appreciated.

You can write the sql code :

alter table tablename add version integer default 0;

Hope this helps ..

... and you can generate this script based on the database catalog. What database are you using?
