I have a table called provider. I have three columns called a person, place, thing. There can be duplicate persons, duplicate places, and duplicate things, but there can never be a duplicate person-place-thing combination.

How would I ALTER TABLE to add a composite primary key for this table in MySQL with these three columns?

Try the code given below:


ALTER TABLE provider ADD PRIMARY KEY(person,place,thing);

If the primary key already exists then you need to use the code as follows:


ALTER TABLE provider DROP PRIMARY KEY, ADD PRIMARY KEY(person, place, thing);
