I’m localizing the icon titles for our upcoming release. Checking off each of the 4 languages in the InfoPlist.strings for each app.
There are often times when you need to insert into an existing table that contains data with a unique numeric field. If you created the field as AUTOINCREMENT, everything is fine. However, in my case, I did not because I generate sqlite tables from my MySql database. So, I have many tables that look like this:
drop table concentration_card if exists; create table concentration_card ( card_id int not null default 0, /* ... */ ); create unique index idx0 on concentration_card (card_id);
I came across this answer on StackOverFlow, which I used to solve my problem: http://stackoverflow.com/a/3127004/2122052
First we need the maximum value from the desired field:
select max(concentration_card); -- We don't need a +1 here because we increment in SELECT
Then set the initial @curRow value and create the insert-select query:
--insert into concentration_card SELECT @curRow := @curRow + 1 as card_id, 0, p.dict_id, p.dict_id, 'Verbs' as name, 0 as inactive, '' as comments, 6 as major_group_id FROM picture_dictionary p JOIN (SELECT @curRow := 1526) r where p.word_group = 'Verbs' and p.`dict_id` not in ( select word1_id from concentration_card where name in ('Basic Verbs', 'Common Verbs') );
