I need to be able to ADD a new column to my mysql database table, when a new 'date' is created for a mailing list i.e. list_2004-12-15 as a column name, but am unsure on how to go about getting the code correct to allow this sort of query to be executed.

I tried a couple of times with output from phpmyadmin but it just gave expecting ` errors.

Any help as ever, appreciated.
