    sure why not? ;)

    say you want to insert the new field between existingfield1 and existingfield2, you would use existingfield1 in the sql statement:

    ALTER TABLE tablename ADD newfieldname newfieldattributes AFTER [B][COLOR="Red"]existingfield1[/COLOR][/B]

    Using phpmyadmin is the easiest way... but that query posted looks fine.
