I need to have one column as the primary key and another to auto increment an order number field. Is this possible?
EDIT: I think I'll just use a composite number as the order number. Thanks anyways.
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Foo]( [FooId] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL, [BarId] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL )
Msg 2744, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 Multiple identity columns specified for table 'Foo'. Only one identity column per table is allowed.
So, no, you can't have two identity columns. You can of course make the primary key not auto increment (identity).
Only one identity column can be created per table.
