Ever use something like phpMyAdmin?  Ever add and/or remove some columns to a table, but then realize that the order of the columns aren’t really the way you’d like them?

This has bothered me ever since I started using phpMyAdmin.  To the best of my knowledge there isn’t a way to fix this from within the software.  However, it’s quite trivial to do it via regular SQL:


ALTER table `table_name`
MODIFY COLUMN `column_name` your_data_type
AFTER `other_column_name`

And by golly it works!
