TupleDesc tupdesc

Attribute number

Valid one-based index number of attribute
SPI_ERROR_NOATTRIBUTE if the named attribute is not found

Description

SPI_fnumber returns the attribute number for the attribute with name in fname.

Usage

Attribute numbers are 1 based.

If the given fname refers to a system attribute (eg, oid) then the appropriate negative attribute number will be returned. The caller should be careful to test for exact equality to SPI_ERROR_NOATTRIBUTE to detect error; testing for result <= 0 is not correct unless system attributes should be rejected.
