SPI_FNUMBER(3)						  PostgreSQL 9.2.7 Documentation					    SPI_FNUMBER(3)

NAME
SPI_fnumber - determine the column number for the specified column name
SYNOPSIS
int SPI_fnumber(TupleDesc rowdesc, const char * colname)
DESCRIPTION
SPI_fnumber returns the column number for the column with the specified name. If colname refers to a system column (e.g., oid) then the appropriate negative column number will be returned. The caller should be careful to test the return value for exact equality to SPI_ERROR_NOATTRIBUTE to detect an error; testing the result for less than or equal to 0 is not correct unless system columns should be rejected.
ARGUMENTS
TupleDesc rowdesc input row description const char * colname column name
RETURN VALUE
Column number (count starts at 1), or SPI_ERROR_NOATTRIBUTE if the named column was not found. PostgreSQL 9.2.7 2014-02-17 SPI_FNUMBER(3)
