If you try to create a table in a Trigger, you'll get the error message "Explicit or implicit commit is not allowed in stored function or trigger."

There'd be something very fishy indeed about a database design that depends on Triggers defining tables.

Why do you think there a need to add table columns?

Databases aren't like take-out orders. Except for temp utility tables, table structure should be the opposite of ad hoc, it should go through an exacting process of verified reconciliation with the database requirement.
