If you mean like the autoinc field type of paradox/access
then the answer is that no such field type exists in Oracle.

You need to create a sequence and use the nextval and currval
properties of the sequence.



CREATE SEQUENCE MYSEQ;

INSERT INTO MYTABLE
(TAB_ID, CUSTOMER_NAME,...)
VALUES
(MYSEQ.NEXTVAL, 'Fred Bloggs',....)
