The rowid column must have the type "integer", and must be the only column in the primary key: SELECT name FROM pragma_table_info('MyTable') WHERE type = 'integer' COLLATE NOCASE GROUP BY pk != 0 HAVING max(pk) = 1; (Before version 3.16.0, this was harder without pragma_table_info().) But there is no reliable way to check for the PRIMARY KEY DESC exception, or whether a table is a WITHOUT ROWID table. You could try to read the rowid/oid/_rowid_ columns, as long as the table does not use all three of these names for other columns.
