How can we alter table to add MySQL stored GENERATED COLUMNS?

MySQLMySQLi Database

For adding MySQL stored GENERATED COLUMNS in a table, we can use the same syntax as adding a column just adding “AS(expression)” after the data type. Its syntax would be as follows −

Syntax

ALTER TABLE table_name
ADD COLUMN column_name AS(expression)STORED;

Example

mysql> ALTER TABLE employee_data_stored ADD COLUMN FULLName Varchar(200) AS (CONCAT_WS(" ", 'First_name','Last_name')) STORED;
Query OK, 2 rows affected (1.23 sec)
Records: 2 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0

mysql> Describe employee_data_stored;
