give details about your database table column

This is strictly a C# question as there is no order to how rows are stored in SQL tables. When you query the table you and do not use an ORDER then it uses the primary key to order the data.

if your insert statement is in your code, you can use ;SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY after your insert statement, this will return the last identity value that you inserted..

simple enough to run another select statement from this to print out the last record.[^]

string sqlInsertActivity = "INSERT INTO activity (CodeID, Subject, ActivityPriorityID, CreatedByEmployeeID, AssignmentTaskStatusID) "
	+ "VALUES('82', 'New Document', '2', '" + createdBy + "', '2') "

string activityID = SqlHelper.ExecuteScalar(conn, CommandType.Text, sqlInsertActivity).ToString();

a quick example above of one I did which inserts a row into a table and returns the id of the record just inserted
