Please can I have the right syntax to use for retrieving the last inserted id after creating a record?
I have this which returns 0
Code: Select all
command mlteSales_CreateSales pRecordA
local tSqlQuery, tSqlParamsA, tRowid
sqlquery_create "sales", pRecordA
put the result into theError
put it into theAffectedRows
-- now get the brand new id

"lastInsertedID" might not be what you want, read the documentation about
. It'a a highly situational function ...
To get the last value of a auto-increment ID, usually:
does the job - as long as the last insert didn't re-use a "ID hole" from a previously deleted record. But since such can only occur due to "manual" overrides of the auto-increment, you should know about ;-)
Assuming SQLYogas "lastInsertedID" does what the equally named MySQL function does, and that you can translate my SQL to SQLYoga, hope I could help ;-)

@nrprioleau - in your function tRowId is never set to anything. dbconn_lastInsertedID puts the id into the it variable. You would want to return it rather than tRowId. Or put it into tRowId and then return tRowId.
