Re: InstantDB: Auto Incrementing


Thank you for your help.

It is an existing table with existing data.

But it seems our problem was not revolving around that anyways, it was another
poorly written jsp and asp application that didn't even use auto increment it
used a table called sequence to store the latest id and then increment from
there, kinda odd...

The bald spots in my hair should grow back, right? argh!!
