how to find last or latest inserted row.? [message #582700] Mon, 22 April 2013 00:47 Go to next message

Hi all,

i have a table in that every month i insert rows and my table doesn't have primary key,index and date filed.

for example:-table is like this

name salary Id
john 5000 101
brat 4500 102
smith 4600 103
john 5500 101
brat 4600 102
smith 4800 103

i think one cannot tell in above table whether "john" salary is 5000 or
5500(last insert row is 5000 then john salary is 5000)

when it comes to retrieve i have to pick the latest(last) insert row of particular Name.
Is there any auto generated row_numbers in Oracle.can anyone please guide me

Thanks and Regards

This was discussed recently, here
Go through the topic, and see if flashback query or rowdependencies would help. They both have problems that may make them unusable, but they are all you have.
You really need to fix the data design.
