I'm trying to programmatically add an identity column to a table Employees. Not sure what I'm doing wrong with my syntax.
ALTER TABLE Employees
ADD COLUMN EmployeeID int NOT NULL IDENTITY (1, 1)
ALTER TABLE Employees ADD CONSTRAINT
PK_Employees PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
) WITH( STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF,
ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON) ON [PRIMARY]
What am I doing wrong? I tried to export the script, but SQL Mgmt Studio does a whole Temp Table rename thing.
UPDATE: I think it is choking on the first statement with "Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'COLUMN'."
