I'm creating a Maria DB project (MySQL) using C#, and I have a need to get the primary key Id from a row I just insert into a table.

I've looked at several solutions on the internet and I'm not having any success.  They are either unreliable (documented errors) or do not work with MySql/Maria.

This is my last effort:

 MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand("INSERT INTO bbb.traveldocuments (CustomerID,TDNumber,TDDateCreated,TDMoveStart,TDMoveEnd,TDJobNumber,TDPermitType,TDNotes)" + "VALUES(@CustomerID,@TDNumber,@TDDateCreated,@TDMoveStart,@TDMoveEnd,@TDJobNumber,@TDPermitType,@TDNotes); SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY() ", con);

cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@TDNotes", txtBox_TD_Notes.Text);

int insertedID = Convert.ToInt32(cmd.ExecuteScalar());

When I run the above code I get:

MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException: 'FUNCTION SCOPE_IDENTITY does not exist'

Are there any suggestions I can try?

Thank you in advance.
