Retreive Mysql Auto Increment Information


Recommended Posts

Hello all.


I would like to know if there is a way to get the auto increment number from a row that is just created.


Here's the senario:


I'm using PHP to display a page and have the user input some information.

Then I have the PHP code 'INSERT' that data into a new row that is created dynamically.

Each row that is created is given a unique id number by auto increment. The number is placed into the field 'id'.

What I want to get is after the information is inputted into the database, have the newly created "id number" returned so I can have the page show the inputted data.

Do you understand my question, or did I ramble? Anyway, if you do understand and can help, I sure would appreciate it.


Thank you.
