STRTOUUID function [String]

Converts a string value to a unique identifier (UUID or GUID) value.

Not needed in newer databases

In databases created before version 9.0.2, the STRTOUUID and UUIDTOSTR functions were needed to convert between binary and string representations of UUID values.

In databases created using version 9.0.2 or later, the UNIQUEIDENTIFIER data type was changed to a native data type. You do not need to use STRTOUUID and UUIDTOSTR functions with these versions.

For more information, see Data types in UltraLite.

  • string-expression   A string in the format xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx.




Converts a string in the format xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx , where x is a hexadecimal digit, to a unique identifier value.

This function is useful for inserting UUID values into a database.
