How to create a sequence in Answers?

Hi everyone,
I want to know if it's possible to create a sequence in Answers and how.
I have a Pivot table that I want to assign row numbers, but when I use RCOUNT(1) in a Dummy column I end up with 1 in all rows.
This is the format of my pivot table.
-------------------------------------Measure---
---------------------------------Y-1-------Y----
Order(DUMMY)---Code---Desc-- 2009 ----- 2010
1 435 idn 1 2
1 53 dvf 3 1
1 123 asd 8 4
I've tried to do RCOUNT(1 by Y) but then I end up having the double of rows.
Can it be done???
Thanks in Advanced

Try doing this:
1) Create a dummy column and call it DUMMY with this in the fx:
CASE WHEN 1=0 THEN tablename.columname ELSE 'whatever' END
2) You can hide this column.
3) Then in your "sequence" column, click on the fx and type:
RCOUNT(1 by DUMMY)
where "DUMMY" is the column created in step 1.

  • How to create a SEQUENCE in MSSQL2005

    Hi
    I am also having a similar problem which opened the thread
    Actually i am using a Repositery which is created in MSSQL2005.
    Now i want to create a SEQUENCE similar to Oracle and populate My surrogate Key Column.
    Can u tell me how to create a SEQUENCE in MSSQL2005?

    Thanks

    Hi Gourisankar,
    There is no sequence concept in MS SQL Server rather it has IDENTITY.
    In MS SQL Server if you declare a column type as a Identity it will be auto increment when a new record inserts.
    So in you underlying table create a column as ID and type as "Identity" and in your mapping leave that field un mapped.
    Have a look and google more on "identity in ms sql server" ;)

    How to Create Test Sequence Document  in HTML using command line
    I have lot of sequences and I want to create Test Sequence Documentation in HTML format using Command Line automatically, is there a way to automate this task using .bat file or using   C#  .Net

    If you aren't able to figure out how to call a C++ DLL in .net then there may be another option.  Unfortunately I don't know how to do this off the top of my head and I don't have an example.
    The other option would be to change docgen.seq a little bit to the dialog doesn't display and you just hardcode the options.  Then you can use a command line to call testexec.exe: http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/370052K-01/tsfundamentals/infotopics/startup_opt/

    Harry,
    Rik is on the right track. Here is a sample insert trigger: Would need to substitute you sequence ORDERS_SEQ with my sequence las_log_seq, how you define or use timestamps is up to you.
    DROP TRIGGER LASDEV.BINS1_LAS_LOG_TBL;
    CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER LASDEV."BINS1_LAS_LOG_TBL"
       BEFORE INSERT
       ON las_log_tbl
       FOR EACH ROW
    BEGIN
       -- Description: Insert log_seq, creation_dt, creation_id,
       --              lst_updt_dt and lst_updt_id.
       -- Maintenance:
       -- Date        Actor          Action
       -- ====        =====          ======
       -- 07-Sep-2010 J. Wells       Create.
       :new.creation_id := nvl( v( 'app_user' ), user );
       :new.creation_dt := SYSDATE;
       :new.lst_updt_dt := :new.creation_dt;
       :new.lst_updt_id := :new.creation_id;
        SELECT las_log_seq.NEXTVAL
          INTO :new.las_log_seq
          FROM DUAL;

    Hello,
    I am using Application Express 4.2.1.00.08
    I am new to apex and i need some help in creating a sequence.
    I am creating an application where i profile people and i need to create an auto sequence that when the person is added to the database he will have his own sequence based on his name, country, city, year he was added, month he was added and his number.
    This is a bit tricky because each person will have a different name, country city etc.
    How can this be done ?

    Hello,
    I have to create a sequence so that when for example an employee is added using a form his ID will be saved based on his name, country, city, year he was created, month he was created and his number.
    However, each employee is diff, so when you add another employee to the form his ID will be different, different name, country, city etc..
    This has to be automatically generated.. is this possible?

    Hi Dheeraj,
    Sequence Object should be created in Database and specify the type of sequence that will be used in toplink to create sequence value.For example,sequence objects created in database needs to be configured using Native Sequence.

    Jan, I have created the multi records it is fine,
    This is about how to get the sequence numbers,
    Lets say some one open one record and it have 5 detail records.
    if he is in second detail record and try to insert a new record i want to show
    Line id 6
    I was trying with
    SELECT nvl(MAX(LINE_PERIOD)+1,0) INTO l_LINE_PERIOD FROM XX_RATE_LINE RL
    WHERE RL.CUSTOMER_ID=:MSF_V.CUSTOMER_ID;
    if l_line_period>4 then -- we gave default 4 records
    bk_id := Find_Block('MSF_LINE');
    --last_record;
    :line_period := Get_Block_Property( bk_id, MAX_RECORDS_FETCHED)+1;
    --CURRENT_RECORD);
    --MAX_RECORDS_FETCHED
    end if;
    CURRENT_RECORD is good if some one navigating properly always into the last record.

    eg:- create sequence test_seq
    start with 1

    Hello all,
    I have to create a sequence with following specs:
    data type: number
    no. of digits: 6
    classification:
    1st digit starts from 5
    next 2 digits represent current year e.g. 06
    and next 3 digits = running serial (001 to 999)
    increament: 1
    example: 506001
    please help me
    regards/gulzar

    it is pre assumption that the running serial will not go beyond 999 in a year
    the ceiling is 500 per year
    yes its a y2.1k issue but we are not supposed to store a uniqe identifier for more than 100 years in the database.
    i m a novice, can you please suggest a code template for such a seq.?

    Hi KinsaKaUy,
    Then, just format it as an IP address (exercise left to you)
    Any hint please :)There is a way of converting from IP Address to IP Number - N.B. two different* things.
    Take a look at this [url https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=10424504]thread, and this [url https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=10420648]one, esp. my responses.
    You can convert IP addresses into decimals (and vice versa) and work with them that way - it often
    makes life easier - I think this should be what you want.

    Can anybody help me out how to implemnt the column condtion in Sequnece.
    Thanks,
    Anoo..

    OK
    I go New -> Table

    1: ID , Datatype: Number
    2: Value , Datatype: Varchar2; precision:20
    Primary Key:

    Confirm
    Table Created --
    Anoo selected.
    Go to Data tab. Select insert row
    In the value field, I enter some data (not in Id as it's populated from the sequence). Click create. This returns me to view of existing data (in my case, only the new row I inserted)
    As far as your query being invalid, without knowing what is in your table, and what you inserting in your query, and what the exact error, its a bit difficult to know.
