    I have downloaded the free personal version of SQLite Expert.

    I have created a field as autoinc in a table.

    I find that when I do an insert into the table from Basic4PPC the autoinc field doesn't automatically create an entry in the field.

    I am also trying SQLMaestro and I can edit the field and make it do autoincrement so that it does add data in the field.

    Has anyone experienced this?

    I guess that the autoinc field is not a real SQLite INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT field but rather a marking that is used by SQLite Expert.
    You can add an auto increment field when you create the table:
    See these pages for more information: SQLite Query Language: CREATE TABLE
    SQLite Autoincrement

    I figured it out

    Hi Erel.

    I got it working by :

    Creating an Integer field

    Creating an Index on this field and making it Primary - the Autoincrement checkbox becomes enabled so click it.

    I tested it and it works like a charm.
