How do I make a column autoincrement?

How do I make a column autoincrement?

How do I make a column autoincrement?

(OP)
I use the Pervasive 8.0 Table Designer. I want to set the first column 'id' to autoincrement. How do I do that?

RE: How do I make a column autoincrement?

Are you trying to modify an existing table or create a new table?

Create a new table. I'm using the Table Designer but can't find a function to make a column autoincrement.

RE: How do I make a column autoincrement?

Are you using Table Designer or Create Table Wizard?  If you're creating a new table, use the Create Table Wizard or SQL statements.  An Autoincrement field is called Identity in SQL.

RE: How do I make a column autoincrement?

(OP)
I had a table without any records that I'm tried to edit in Table Designer, but the Data Type Identity weren't present in the drop down list. But when I use the new table wizard the data type Identity are present. Strange but now I (or you) have solved the problem.

Thanx
