Re: InstantDB: Alter table statement error


Daniel

You're right. Definitely a bug. What's happening is that the statement

ALTER TABLE stt ADD gdx DECIMAL(11,3) NOT NULL

causes the gdx column to get added. As there is no defaults, all values get
set to null, but as the column definition is NOT NULL, it fails.
Unfortunately, it doesn't back out cleanly. I'll see that this gets fixed in
the next release, but in the meantime, try adding a default to the column
definition.

Regards

Pete
