Experts,

My table was like this:

CREATE TABLE t(x INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, y);

then I did insert: INSERT INTO t VALUES (115,200); INSERT INTO t VALUES (16,300); INSERT INTO t VALUES (250,300);


The problem is: My query "SELECT * FROM t" always sorted ascending automatically by x (primary key). I'm using tksqlite gui to test. The result:
16   300
115 200
250 300

How to get records without sorted automatically (based on order of insert) and without additional column e.g: timestamp?
115 200
16   300
250 300

Thank you.
