What do you mean "last row in the table"? Tables are sets - they
don't have any order, unless you impose it. So picking the last
row is meaningless. If you want the row that was most recently
updated, then you should use a TIMESTAMP column, and do this:
SELECT * FROM submission ORDER BY timestamp_column DESC LIMIT 1;
There are other ways to do it.
