Hi Paul,

In the case of mysql, it would be UUID and the value would look like this:


and the case of postgresql,


which is 36 CHAR length (including dashes not braces) and is not quite
like identity insert (autoincrement).  You could store it as
binary(16) - in mysql - but you'll need to implement UDFs to convert
between binary & char.  Is that what you're using? or Are you using an
INT type?
