Getting Error: E/SQLiteLog﹕ (1) AUTOINCREMENT is only allowed on an INTEGER PRIMARY KEY

Hi,

I'm getting a SQLiteException when I try to run memeMaker for the first time to try to create the tables. See below log;

You need to add a space between KEY_ID AND INTEGER

So change

  • KEY_ID + "INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT, " to

  • KEY_ID + " INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT, "

Thanks - however I already had the space.

I had, "INEGER PRIMARY KEY " - So i've now changed that to be correct, However it's still crashing on take off.

See my MemeSQLiteHelper.java;

public class MemeSQLiteHelper extends SQLiteOpenHelper{

private static final String DB_NAME = "memes.db";
private static final int DB_VERSION = 1;
//Meme Table functionality
public static final String MEMES_TABLE = "MEMES";
public static final String COLUMN_MEME_ASSET = "ASSET";
public static final String COLUMN_MEME_NAME = "NAME";
private static String CREATE_MEMES =
        "CREATE TABLE " + MEMES_TABLE + "("
                + BaseColumns._ID + " INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT," +
                COLUMN_MEME_ASSET + " TEXT," +
                COLUMN_MEME_NAME + " TEXT)";

//Meme Table Annotations functionality
public static final String ANNOTATIONS_TABLE = "ANNOTATIONS";
public static final String COLUMN_ANNOTATION_COLOR = "COLOR";
public static final String COLUMN_ANNOTATION_X = "X";
public static final String COLUMN_ANNOTATION_Y = "Y";
public static final String COLUMN_ANNOTATION_TITLE = "TITLE";
public static final String COLUMN_FOREIGN_KEY_MEME = "MEME_ID";

private static final String CREATE_ANNOTATIONS = "CREATE TABLE " + ANNOTATIONS_TABLE + " (" +
        BaseColumns._ID + " INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT," +
        COLUMN_ANNOTATION_X + " INTEGER, " +
        COLUMN_ANNOTATION_Y + " INTEGER, " +
        COLUMN_ANNOTATION_TITLE + " TEXT, " +
        COLUMN_ANNOTATION_COLOR + " TEXT, " +
        COLUMN_FOREIGN_KEY_MEME + " INTEGER, " +
        "FOREIGN KEY(" + COLUMN_FOREIGN_KEY_MEME + ") + REFERENCES MEMES(_ID))";


public MemeSQLiteHelper(Context context)
{
    super(context, DB_NAME, null, DB_VERSION);
}


@Override
public void onCreate(SQLiteDatabase sqLiteDatabase) {
    sqLiteDatabase.execSQL(CREATE_MEMES);
    sqLiteDatabase.execSQL(CREATE_ANNOTATIONS);
}

@Override
public void onUpgrade(SQLiteDatabase sqLiteDatabase, int i, int i2) {

}

}
