SQL to change the column datatype

Microsoft sql server TSQL

ALTER TABLE TABLENAME ALTER COLUMN COLUMNNAME CHGDATATYPE

MYSQL TSQL

ALTER TABLE TABLENAME MODIFY COLUMNNAME CHGDATATYPE


For paradox and dbase we need to write the code as follows in delphi


unit autoincfld;

interface

uses
Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
Dialogs, BDE, DB, DBClient, DBTables, StdCtrls;

type

TChangeRec = packed record
szName: DBINAME; { field name }
iType: word; { field type }
iSubType: word; { field subtype }
iLength: word; { field length }
iPrecision: byte; { precision }
end;

type
TForm1 = class(TForm)
Table1: TTable;
Button1: TButton;
procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
private
{ Private declarations }

procedure ChangeField(Table: TTable; Field: TField; Rec: TChangeRec);
