ColumnAutoincrement

Nov 19, 2010 at 9:02 PM

Is it possible to set a Long column as ColumnAutoincrement after the table has been created and filled with data? I can't find an API function to do this, but I thought I'd ask anway.

The reason I ask is because I'm importing data from SQL Server tables and the IDENTITY column values get renumbered when they are added to the ESE table. I'd like to import the IDENTITY values unchanged, then set the ColumnAutoincrement so that future record additions will increment normally.

Unfortunately you can't do that -- it is a cunning idea though.
