Hello all, I'm inserting records from another system and it looks something like this: Model.create :id=>123, :name=>"asdf" I noticed that the id attribute is ignored (the database will automatically assign an auto_increment id starting from 1). I remember reading about this before: iirc this is done so that you can easily fill in model information from forms, but I can't find any documentation on this now. Is there a way to force the id? Or do I have to do: m = Model.new( :name=>"asdf" ) m.id = 123 m.save Thanks.
