How to create a sequence number to insert values to database

I am working on the application for the client to insert their vendor informaton to our database. We have a refvendor table and vendorid is primary key. I was asked for the vendorid to be a sequential number. I am not sure if the DBA set up the vendor id to be a sequential number by creating sequence or is this something i can do myself. if so can you help me how i can create and make the vendor id a sequentiial number. Thank you
Tablename is Refvendor
vendorId, vendorname, dbestaus

thank you for the reply. I am still learning about sequence. so the value from seq.netval will be inserted to the vendor id field. my first number will be 00001,00002,00003,00004,.... How can I do for the sequence to start with 00001If you create a sequence as shown, it will start with 1
,..... and my other question if I delete sequence 00002 will the number be re-arranged?no
There will be gaps in the numbers.

  • How to create unique sequence number

    I'm new to ODI and trying to learn. Below is the requirement. Please advise.
    I'm trying to load data from one database (oracle) to another database table (AS400). But when i load the data into AS400, I need to create a unique ID for each record and write this unique ID to one of the fields in AS400.
    I don't have any issues loading the data from oracle to AS400. But I'm unable to generate a unique ID for each record. Can any share your thoughts how to get this.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi ,
    First, on the DB2/400 instance, create a table containing an Identity column:
    START WITH 1000,
    Second, in the same DB2/400 instance, create a function that returns an incremented number from the Identity column:
    RETURN (SELECT identity_val_local() FROM QSYS2.QSQPTABL);
    Finally, in Designer, use the snpRef.getObjectName() substitution method to refer to the DB2/400 function in the interface's mapping for the appropriate field:

    I have had found that the following works sometimes when coming immediately after the create or replace package body in a script (although it isn't doing anything for me on invalid package bodies at the moment):
    show errors package body <package name>
    Because it is inconsistent, you cannot really trust it, which gets you back to Jim's options (open in editor or compile from connection tree) or the old long hand of
    select * from user_errors where type = 'PACKAGE BODY' and name = '<package name>'

  • How to create a SEQUENCE in MSSQL2005

    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?
    Does anyone is having the sql syntax?

    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" ;)

    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:

  • How to create a sequence based on name, country, city, year, month, number

    I am using Application Express
    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 ?

    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?

  • How to create a sequence for an particular item in my apex form

    Hi friends,
    I created an database application, of a form with a report, and it is working fine...
    But in my form, i have a requirement....The below are the existing fields in my form
    issue no
    created by
    start date
    due date
    Among these fields in my form i need to create a 'Sequence' for my field "issue no",
    So that whenever i opened the form the 'issue number' must generate automatically like 1 for the first time, 2 for the second time and so on..
    For that i created a sequence
    MAXVALUE 999999999999999999999999999
    START WITH 1000
    But for validation where i need to write the sequence query for the particular item 'issue no'....i dont have any idea of where to write the validation query for the sequence..
    please tell where i need to write in step wise manner..please help me friends...
    As the below is my validated sequence query for item 'issue no'
    'select seq.issue_id.nextval into issue_no'
    This is my above validation query whether the query that i mentioned is right..if not let me know the validation query..
    And also i need where to apply this validation query in steps..

    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.

  • How to create a sequence in oracle forms6i

    Oracle forms 6i
    Hai All
    I am working in leave application entry so i need to create a sequence for giving a unique number for each entry
    Pls tell me the steps how to created and how to call the sequence from database
    Thanks in Advance

    Create sequence <sequence_name>
    Start with <number>
    increment by <number>
    in database
    eg:- create sequence test_seq
    start with 1
    increment by 1;
    in forms
    you can assign value in pre-insert trigger
    cursor cur_seq is
    select test_seq.nextval from dual;
    open cur_seq;
    fetch cur_seq into :item_key ; /* :item_key give name of ur primary key field*/
    close cur_seq;

  • How to pass the sequence number of current loop in a for loop in FPGA vi to the host

    LV 8.2
    What I was trying to do is to use multiple DIO to generate pulse at different sequence. Mode one is to automatically sweep from DIO1 to DIO20; mode 2 is several DIOs generate pulse simoutaneously.  So I use a case structure to make the selection, in the mean time, I set up two for loop in each case so that I can use multiple pulse generations. For example, in scanning mode, if I set 2 exposures, it sweeps from 1 to 20 then do it again.  
    Then I need to get the loop sequence number, i of each scenario. So I put an indicator within the first loop, and create a local variable of it and put in the second one.  Running the FPGA vi alone, I can see the indicator change in each case from 0 to N-1, N being the for loop time.But in the host vi, I tried to add this indicator as an element in the read/write invoke method, in the debugging mode, I could only see it directly jump to N-1 without all the changes I saw in FPGA vi. 
    Is it possible to get this number passed correctly from FPGA vi to the host vi? Thanks

    Thanks for the reply Jared.
    Excuse me if it looks incorrect, but I'm new to FPGA programming, so I would have to look into the FIFO you referred to.  I used local variables because for one thing I have several different cases containing for loop in each of them, and I only want one indicator for the "i".  If I put the indicator out of any for loop, it's only gonna show the last number which is N-1.  For the other thing, it seems like property nodes are not allowed in FPGA vi.  And by doing this, I can see the i number changing from 0 to N-1 in each case, well, in FPGA vi's front panel.  But while I ran the host vi with everything, the indicator in host vi's front panel only showed the last number N-1. It may be the reason you said, it happened too fast before the indicator in host vi can catch it.
    What I want to realize is to group the data I collect in host vi, for example, when I choose multiple exposure in each mode, and the FPGA runs 1 through 20 then do it again, I want the data stored in two groups using the loop sequence number as the seperator in file name.  So it goes like 1-1, 2-1.......20-1; then 1-2, 2-2,.....20-2.

  • 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.
    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.
