Hi,

I insert a record in a table wich have an auto-increment ID column. I want to retrieve the newly inserted record by reading the generated ID.

I"m using Oracle 10g. What is the best way to do this? I'm looking for something similar than @@Identity in SQL Server.

Thanks

use the RETURNING clause

assuming you have a table my_table(id number, x number, y number, z number) with a trigger populating the id column via sequence, try this...


insert into my_table (x,y,z) values (1,2,3) RETURNING id INTO v_id_value;

in oracle, the "identity" is translated into a sequence object, eventually combined with a trigger:
