Hi Experts,

Is it possible to add an unique identifier in a SQL server 2005 table, I want the table to include a Key field called "ID" and this to auto increment by 1 for each new record, as autonumber in access?

Regards,
Joe

yes, this is called an IDENTITY column.

create table TestTab (id int identity , name varchar(100) )
go

insert into TestTab select 'aneesh' union all select 'anoop'

select * from TestTab
