Subj:   Re: Identity Columns
 
From:   GORRELLA, SRINI

Joe,

INDENTITY column does not guarantee a monotonically increasing sequence but it does guarantee a unique key to identify the row . If you want to ensure the values shld be in increasing order , you need to get rid from IDENTITY column and make it as a INTEGER NOT NULL , and populate that with either CSUM or RANK function , make sure while using the RANK, how unique the data is going to be

The huge gap is due to IDCOL batch size


Thanks,

Srini
