I keep getting 1064 error in phpmyadmin

I am trying to create a table in phpmyadmin with the following

SQL : 

CREATE TABLE `umOrder`.`Bill` (
    `Id` INT(5) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
    `userID` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL ,
    `product` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL ,
    `quantity` INT(3) NOT NULL ,
    `price` DOUBLE(5) NOT NULL , 
    `date` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL ,
    PRIMARY KEY (`Id`(5))
  ) ENGINE = MEMORY;

But keep getting this error :

1064 – You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near ‘) NOT NULL , date VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL , PRIMARY KEY (Id(5))) ENGINE =’ at line 1

I don’t really understand what the error mean ? any Idea ?

Answer

The key(id(5)) is suspect. But you have another error as well: double doesn’t take a length argument.

The following should work:

CREATE TABLE `Bill` (
    `Id` INT(5) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
    `userID` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL ,
    `product` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL ,
    `quantity` INT(3) NOT NULL ,
    `price` DOUBLE NOT NULL , 
    `date` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL ,
    PRIMARY KEY (`Id`)
  ) ENGINE = MEMORY;

Here is a SQL Fiddle.

Note: I don’t think it is helpful to put length arguments after numeric types (other than decimal/numeric). You might want to consider removing all of them.
