MySQL not returning correct ID 100% of the time

Hi everyone,

I have a c# app which uses MySQL to save information to the database, however I'm having trouble returning the auto increment. Most times it works perfectly, but intermittently it can break, returning an incorrect ID. The problem is that in some cases I will use this ID to add to other tables etc. I have inluded a snippet of how I am inserting into the database and how i retrieve the auto incremented id:


public static int Insert(Administrators c)
        Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Data.Database db = Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Data.DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase();

        c.ClientsID = Globals.ClientsID; // set to the current clientsid
        int AdministratorsID = 0;

        string ctext = "INSERT INTO administrators (Pass,Email,Name,ClientsID,Username,AType,AllowOverride,NonCreditCard) VALUES (?Pass,?Email,?Name,?ClientsID,?Username,?AType,?AllowOverride,?NonCreditCard)";
        DbCommand insertCommand = db.GetSqlStringCommand(ctext);

        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?ClientsID", DbType.Int32, c.ClientsID);
        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?AType", DbType.String, c.AType);
        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?Name", DbType.String, c.Name);
        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?Email", DbType.String, c.Email);
        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?Username", DbType.String, c.Username);
        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?Pass", DbType.String, c.Pass);
        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?UniqueKey", DbType.String,;
        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?NonCreditCard", DbType.String, (c.NonCreditCard ? "Yes" : "No"));
        db.AddInParameter(insertCommand, "?AllowOverride", DbType.String, (c.AllowOverride ? "Yes" : "No"));
            using (DbConnection connection = db.CreateConnection())

                ctext = "SELECT last_insert_id()";
                insertCommand = db.GetSqlStringCommand(ctext);
                AdministratorsID = Convert.ToInt32(db.ExecuteScalar(insertCommand));

        catch (DbException e)
            LogEntry log = new LogEntry();
            log.EventId = 105;
            log.Message = "Error Inserting Administrator To Database\r\n" + ctext + "\r\n" + e.ToString() + "\r\n" + e.StackTrace;
            log.Severity = TraceEventType.Information;
            log.Priority = 5;
        return AdministratorsID;


Any feedback provided will be much appreciated.

last_insert_id will return the last ID any user has inserted into any table that has an auto-increment column. 

What you are seeing is a concurrency issue between multiple users of your page. You will need to run your statements within a transaction:

using (DbConnection connection = db.CreateConnection())

  MySqlTransaction trans = connection.BeginTransaction();
  insertCommand.Transaction = trans;

  ctext = "SELECT last_insert_id()";
  insertCommand = db.GetSqlStringCommand(ctext);
  insertCommand.Transaction = trans;
  AdministratorsID = Convert.ToInt32(db.ExecuteScalar(insertCommand));
