I've been asked by some friends to give some DB help on an Access DB field they have, running on a server 2003 VPS through AT&T.
They need a few fields added. Through AT&T there is no control panel to the DB, just a place to setup the DSN. There isn't local access to the machine, since it's a VPS through someone else, to run Access on.
So would someone typically add fields to a DB? With MySQL (Which I"m much more familiar with) I would just load up something like phpmyadmin, or something similar. Or even do it from the CLI..
