Adding columns to existing columns

I am trying to add additional columns to existing columns (Column Name, Data Type, Length and Allow Nulls). I know I have to use syscolumns and sysobjects. Would you please tell me how to start?

No, you don't. Do NOT alter system tables directly. Look up "alter table" in books online. It has all of the information you need.
