Hi
 
I have a table assume Users and i need to add a column and insert a default value.
 
the default value is in the same table(Users)
 
assume Users table has ID, Name, Password
 
Now I need to insert a column as Confirm Password which data should be same as Password value.
 
How can I alter the table and insert the value to that column.
 
Can anyone help me
 
Thanks,
