|MySql error adding new row|
| 1:57 pm on Aug 12, 2008 (gmt 0)|
Not used mySql for a long time and having a problem adding to a simple table.
Trying to add the row 'Postage' - it should be able to hold values with decimals - 1.99 for example.
ALTER TABLE `main` ADD `postage` SMALLINT( 1.99 ) NULL
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '1.99) NULL' at line 1
Any help would be great, thanks!

"SMALLINT" is an integer type, you probably need something like NUMERIC or DECIMAL (I forget which one MySQL uses, maybe both).

It supports both NUMERIC and DECIMAL (one is implemented as other). You can check out the online docs at [dev.mysql.com...] or search for "mysql numeric data types" and look for the dev mysql site.
