Hi Experts,

Don't know if this is possible. Have a table with just an ID and datetime so both are set with defaults.

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tb_ErrorLog](
	[errorLogID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
	[errorLogDate] [datetime] NOT NULL,
 CONSTRAINT [PK_tb_ErrorLog] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED 
(
	[errorLogID] ASC
)WITH (PAD_INDEX  = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE  = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS  = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS  = ON) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO

ALTER TABLE [dbo].[tb_ErrorLog] ADD  CONSTRAINT [DF_tb_ErrorLog_errorLogDate]  DEFAULT (getdate()) FOR [errorLogDate]
GO

Open in new window


All I want to do is to increment the table with a record every time a particular web page is reached.

So how do you write the INSERT statement without any passed values?

Regs,
Numb
