Hi
   Can you please elaborate more on what you want.
I guess if you want the sequence functionality then
there is facility of auto genration of numbers in db2.
For that you have to crate a table with a field which is
populated by db2 itself. You can find detail about on db2
manuals.
          If you want row number like functionality then
you can use ROW_NUMBER() function.

I'm trying to create a view on existing tables. All these tables contains a column OID (because the application above is object oriented). I wanna combine all the OID's in one column in the view and exactly for this I need an additional sequence number.
