#1: Timestamp not working

Posted on 2005-11-12 16:47:16 by si

I have added a field to one of my PostgreSQL tables in the "Timestamp"
datatype, but when I add a row to that table I don't get the date and time
inserted into that column? Do I need to put a default value into the column
too?

Yep. I haven't done this for a while, but if my memory serves me, you
need to use CURRENT_TIME, CURRENT_DATE, or CURRENT_TIMESTAMP as a
default value to populate the column. For more on these functions, see
the docs:
