Description Joshua Ginsberg 2004-06-11 12:18:34 EDT
Description of problem:
When a table is defined as having its primary key "auto_increment",
this cannot be overridden by an insert command.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Use the following definition:
create table foo (
id int not null primary key auto_increment,
s varchar(20)

insert into foo values (0, 'foo');
insert into foo values (1, 'bar');
Actual results:
An error is thrown about having duplicate indicies for the second
insert statement; 'foo' was entered with an index of 1, not 0.

Expected results:

'foo' is entered with an id of 0.

AFAIK this is the intended behavior in MySQL.
Comment 2 Joshua Ginsberg 2004-06-11 16:16:05 EDT
Hehe. We had a midair collision. I was just putting that I found
NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO -- so never mind. Thanks!
