Subject:ROWID
View as plain text  
Hi there,

Both Oracle and Informix use ROWID to uniquely represent the location of
each row of data in a table.  ROWID is basically a hidden column or
pseudocolumn for each table, and it is the fastest way to retrive a row from
a table.  Does MySql have similar field?  If is, what's the name and how to
access it?

Thank you very much in advance for your advice.
