Hello,

 

There are some database that use serial key as a text type and some database use as a number type. I like to ask if there is any difference between using a number or a text type?

 

Is there an advantage using a number type compared to the text type for pirmary keys?

 

Or can you use either of the two?

 

 

Thank you!
