Subject Re: [ib-support] Change varcahr(40) to Varchar(100)
Author Andy Browne
Hi Michael

1) Add a temp field varchar(100)
2) copy data from field to temp field (check the copy)
3) drop field Varchar(40)
4) add field Varchar(100)
5) copy from temp field to new field (check copy)
6) drop temp field.

If you have dependancies you will have to sort those out first.

This is long winded but safe!
