I am working on a site with EE where the client is having some of the data pushed into to the MySQL database from a external FilemakerPro database. I'm working with an external company who handle the clients database for them and in order to push the data through they need to know how the exp_channel_data table allocates it's primary key. Apparently looking at the setting in MySQL, it's the only pertinent table which doesn't do it automatically.
Could anyone shed any light on this? Many thanks.
