Sql updating identity column

If your table already has a column which you want to convert to identity column, you can’t do that directly.There is a workaround for the same which I have discussed in depth over the article Add or Remove Identity Property on .If your table has already identity column and you can want to add another identity column for any reason – that is not possible. If you try to have multiple identity column your table, it will give following error.Pinal Dave is a SQL Server Performance Tuning Expert and an independent consultant.

The actual answer is just two create table statements and three merges. USE tempdb; --## Create test tables ##-- CREATE TABLE Customers( [Id] INT NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY Id ENTITY, [Name] NVARCHAR(200) NOT NULL ); CREATE TABLE Orders( [Id] INT NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY Id ENTITY, [Customer Id] INT NOT NULL, [Order Date] DATE NOT NULL, CONSTRAINT [FK_Customers_Orders] FOREIGN KEY ([Customer Id]) REFERENCES [Customers]([Id]) ); CREATE TABLE Order Items( [Id] INT NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY Id ENTITY, [Order Id] INT NOT NULL, [Item Id] INT NOT NULL, CONSTRAINT [FK_Orders_Order Items] FOREIGN KEY ([Order Id]) REFERENCES [Orders]([Id]) ); CREATE TABLE Customers2( [Id] INT NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY Id ENTITY, [Name] NVARCHAR(200) NOT NULL ); CREATE TABLE Orders2( [Id] INT NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY Id ENTITY, [Customer Id] INT NOT NULL, [Order Date] DATE NOT NULL, CONSTRAINT [FK_Customers2_Orders2] FOREIGN KEY ([Customer Id]) REFERENCES [Customers2]([Id]) ); CREATE TABLE Order Items2( [Id] INT NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY Id ENTITY, [Order Id] INT NOT NULL, [Item Id] INT NOT NULL, CONSTRAINT [FK_Orders2_Order Items2] FOREIGN KEY ([Order Id]) REFERENCES [Orders2]([Id]) ); --== Populate some dummy data ==-- INSERT Customers(Name) VALUES('Aaberg'),('Aalst'),('Aara'),('Aaren'),('Aarika'),('Aaron'),('Aaronson'),('Ab'),('Aba'),('Abad'); INSERT Orders(Customer Id, Order Date) SELECT Id, Id GETDATE() FROM Customers; INSERT Order Items(Order Id, Item Id) SELECT Id, Id*1000 FROM Orders; INSERT Customers2(Name) VALUES('Zysk'),('Zwiebel'),('Zwick'),('Zweig'),('Zwart'),('Zuzana'),('Zusman'),('Zurn'),('Zurkow'),('Zurhe Ide'); INSERT Orders2(Customer Id, Order Date) SELECT Id, Id GETDATE() 20 FROM Customers2; INSERT Order Items2(Order Id, Item Id) SELECT Id, Id*1000 10000 FROM Orders2; SELECT * FROM Customers JOIN Orders ON Orders. I certainly understand not wanting to skip hundreds of thousands of potential valid IDs during this process, especially if the process will be repeated (mine was ultimately run a grand total of around 20 times over the course of 30 months).So please guide me as to how to get proper id values after deletion.As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format.The problem I am facing is this: I have 5 rows in my table with identity columns 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.Now, the usual thing is when I will delete row no 5 and insert a new row after deletion, the new row should have an id value of 5. Similarly, when I delete this row and insert new row, it gets value 7.
