I just added ENUM('ON','OFF') to the data type when I created the table. I
did not receive an error. If you didn't enter the values At the time you
created the field, then that is probably why you got the error.
Here's the SQL that was created:
ALTER TABLE `myDatabase`.`tblTest` MODIFY COLUMN `id` INTEGER UNSIGNED NOT
ADD COLUMN `enumColumn` ENUM('ON','OFF') NOT NULL DEFAULT 'OFF' AFTER `id`
, COMMENT = 'Test Table';
Hope this helps!

Subject: sets and enums
Anybody know how to set-up a set or an enum type in MySQL using the MySQL
I entered field-type ENUM but that was as far as I got, because the
Administrator returns an error when I click update. Need to know where to
put the lookup table for the enum type as well.
Thanks in advance... and Have a great day!
