PDO::lastInsertId

(PHP 5 >= 5.1.0, PECL pdo >= 0.1.0)

PDO::lastInsertId Returns the ID of the last inserted row or sequence value

Description

public string PDO::lastInsertId ([ string $name = NULL ] )

Returns the ID of the last inserted row, or the last value from a sequence object, depending on the underlying driver. For example, PDO_PGSQL requires you to specify the name of a sequence object for the name parameter.

Note:

This method may not return a meaningful or consistent result across different PDO drivers, because the underlying database may not even support the notion of auto-increment fields or sequences.

Parameters

name

Name of the sequence object from which the ID should be returned.

Return Values

If a sequence name was not specified for the name parameter, PDO::lastInsertId() returns a string representing the row ID of the last row that was inserted into the database.

If a sequence name was specified for the name parameter, PDO::lastInsertId() returns a string representing the last value retrieved from the specified sequence object.

If the PDO driver does not support this capability, PDO::lastInsertId() triggers an IM001 SQLSTATE.
