To add column at end of the table

ALTER TABLE table_name ADD column_name VARCHAR(10);

To insert a new column after a specific column, use this statement

ALTER TABLE table_name ADD new_column_name VARCHAR(10) AFTER existing_column_name;

If you want the new column to be first, use this statement:

ALTER TABLE table_name ADD column_name  VARCHAR(10) FIRST;
