Description:
I try to retrieve the last insert id from a database.

How to repeat:
Select from `test`.`tphones` Last_insert_id()

Try something like this:

create table test.tai(id int auto_increment primary key);
insert into test.tai values ();
insert into test.tai values ();
select * from test.tai;
select last_insert_id();

Check the manual, http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/information-functions.html#function_last-insert-id, for the details.

It's work, thank's, but only if I use right after insert statement.

But how to retrieve the biggest ID from a table. In this case, #3:

|----|
| ID |
|----|
|  1 |
|  2 |
|  3 |
|----|

I got it! Thanks!
Here is the command:

Select id From test.tai Where id = (Select Max( id ) From test.tai);
