This is very likely due to the fact that you've made your AUTO_INCREMENT
column a VARCHAR type, when AUTO_INCREMENT can be used only for integer
columns. There is probably some sort of type conversion going on that
results in your trying to insert a record with an Offer_id value that
duplicates a value already present in the table.
