Hi,

As per codd's rules for Relational databases, there is no guaratee about order in which touples(records) stored in the database tables.
If you wish to retrive the last order, you must use order by clause along with the cursor.. or agreegate function like MAX in your select query.

I am not sure if ROWID can solve your purpose.

Thanks,
Parikshit.
