primary key

Scroll Prev Top Next More

A column or set of columns that uniquely identify a row; in other words, each value in a primary key column is unique. A primary-key constraint prevents duplicate (non-unique) and null values from being entered into a column. Even if you do not specifically define a constraint, all tables (in a well-designed database) should have a primary key. You can define one primary key per table.
