UUID() as a field initialization/default value
Posted by: JK Heydt

I wish to default/initialize a field called "RowID" (CHAR(36)) with the UUID() function but I just can't put that function in the Default field of the table designer. When I add a row it just puts the word 'UUID()' in the field.

What is the recommended way to make UUID() the default/initialization value for a field? Do I need to create a trigger?
