Auto-increment columns and sequences


Nice. As you can see, there are quite a few ways of auto-numbering in databases. Some of them only use IDENTITY (e.g. SQL Server), other take AUTO_INCREMENT (e.g. MySQL), and there are also such databases which only have sequences (e.g. PostgreSQL). So, each time you work with a new database, read the documentation and check which of the options are available.
