mysql: troubles with insert

Thanks Mark,

it is not an auto_increment field.

I think something is wrong in the way Rev creates a query out of my  
If I force Rev to put the right value in the query by doing this:
     put "INSERT INTO g2_Entity() VALUES('"&vars[1]&"',: 
2,:3,:4,:2,:3,:5,:4)" into tsql
the record is inserted with the correct id.
But the standard way:
     put "INSERT INTO g2_Entity() VALUES(:1,:2,:3,:4,:2,:3,:5,:4)"  
into tsql
inserts it with the wrong id.

I have double checked the values of my array vars[] - it is OK.

I was wondering if this might have something to do with the way Rev  
handles arrays. Rev 'does' only associative arrays, not numeric  
arrays, isn' t it? I was a bit surprised to find out that I had to  
use numeric arrays in order to build queries.

Just a thought..
