Workbench 6: 'CHANGE' or 'CHANGED' keyword


I was working in workbench and following the instructions of video 'Altering Columns' an found a keyword autocomple named 'CHANGED'.

Try to find the 'CHANGE' keyword in autocomple but is missing.

So my question is...

Is the keyword 'CHANGED' equivalent to 'CHANGE'? Is there a way to insert 'CHANGE' in my Workbench 6 autocomple?

Thanks a lot in advance. :D

I don't believe so, CHANGED is not in the MySQL 5.6 documentation while CHANGE is. When in doubt just try it and see what it does!

Here is the Documentation Link.

Hi James !

Thank you for the link. I didn't found anything about 'CHANGED' keyword either.

If I use it the response throws 'error'. So is strange that 'CHANGED' comes up instead of 'CHANGE' in Workbench autocomplete.

I thought there is a way to customize autocomplete in Workbech ... but I will keep googling it.
