You are using ALTER TABLE to add a column to the according table. If that is what you want, note that COMMENT is a reserved word and needs to be put in double quotes when used as a column name or other identifier, so you should try:

ALTER TABLE dbo.api_sugar_uggroups ADD "Comment" TEXT NULL

However, if you just want to add a comment on the table, use the separate COMMENT statement instead.

Dear Volker,

I double quoted and now it's ok. Thank you very much for your help.
