How do I add a column to an existing table

I have created my results, add, delete, edit and update page through the DataAssist Wizard, if I want to add another column to a table, that I want included in the form, how would I do it?

Would I have to start all over?

Thanks,

If you add a column to the db after the fact you will either need to manually update the pages along with the recordsets, inserts and updates on them or you can regenerate the set of pages. To regenerate the pages you will need to backup or delete your current ones first.

So I would manually add my new form field to the code, then I would go update my recordset. When you say inserts and updates, are you talking about the Insert page and Update Page?

Yeah, you would add in the form fields to all of the forms and update the recordset on the results and details page, then update the update and insert server behaviors on the update and insert pages.

On the results and details pages you will also need to add in bindings to the page where you would like to see the info from the new column.
