Adds a column of type GlobalID to a Geodatabase table or feature class.

GlobalID columns can be added or deleted to versioned as well as non-versioned ArcSDE tables. In ArcSDE, GlobalID columns can be added to tables that already have data. With Personal or File Geodatabases, however, the tables must have no rows otherwise an error is generated when trying to add the column.

Attempts to add these columns for non-supported data sources like shapefile and coverages fail with errors.
