right, the documentation says that this action is not supported.
I was surprised because the "auto completion" in cqlsh allows you to try it and, moreover, you have an example of a drop column when you use "help alter_drop".
Maybe it would be nice to change at least the documentation and auto-completion ?
I dont think it's supported http://www.datastax.com/docs/1.2/cql_cli/cql/ALTER_TABLE#dropping-typed-colAnyone else know?CheersOn 3/04/2013, at 8:11 PM, julien Campan <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:This is what I tried :When I try to drop a column , it's not working.Hi,I'm working with cassandra 1.2.2.
