Hi

I try to do this

"INSERT INTO websites (website, uid, currentlymonitoring) values ('http://www.a.com', 1, '1')"

and uid is an Identity.

Is there a way to force it to insert into an Identity?

Thanks

Hi boofulls,

Set Identity_Insert Websites On
INSERT INTO websites (website, uid, currentlymonitoring) values ('http://www.a.com', 1, '1')
Set Identity_Insert Websites Off
