When creating a "Patch", how would you go about making modifications to an application database that has user populated tables? For example: If I want to add a new table and/or field to an MSDE database and need to preserve the existing data contained in the database (cannot replace database), how would I handle this within a minor patch update?

Could you write a DMO vb application to mod your db structure and run it after installing it ?
