No and yes. (in that order ;)

There's no ALTER TABLE to do that, but you can do it via
two tricks:

- create a domain with a default and change your column to be of
that domain type instead of a raw datatype


- modify it by updating the system tables.

If you download Database Workbench ( ) you
can change the default and it will generate the required statements
to do this.
