It doesn't work for me. I have an error message when trying to use now().

Re: Default current datetime for column 80 80

create table tblname (
fieldname datetime default getdate()
)

Re: Default current datetime for column 80 80

In the column definition: default value = now()

Err: user must input default value to = ( getdate() )

With this SQL will insert the date + time everytime someone inserts values in that columns.
