How do i do that ? thanks

** My DBMS is MySQL **

Make use of a variable and increment it like following.

set @num:=0; 
select *,  @num:=@num+1 `Row` from names;


mysql> create table names( name varchar(10) primary key )engine=Innodb charset=utf8 collate utf8_general_ci;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.09 sec)

mysql> insert into names values('a'), ('b'), ('cat'), ('dog'), ('parrot'), ('bird');
Query OK, 6 rows affected (0.04 sec)
Records: 6  Duplicates: 0  Warnings: 0

mysql> set @num:=0; select *,  @num:=@num+1 `Row` from names;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

| name   | Row  |
| a      |    1 |
| b      |    2 |
| bird   |    3 |
| cat    |    4 |
| dog    |    5 |
| parrot |    6 |
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Note: If you are using * make certain it precedes.

Build your primary key a car increment area. More information here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/example-auto-increment.html

AUTO_INCREMENT is what you're searching for

Such as this :

CREATE TABLE animals (
     name CHAR(30) NOT NULL,
     PRIMARY KEY (id)

Obtained from here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/example-auto-increment.html

EDIT: In line with the comment someone may want to include that by hand. You choose the utmost value out of your filed, increment by 1 after which place it to your table.

SELECT MAX(id) FROM animals
