Oracle SQLPlus Autonumber

Hello,

I'm using Oracle SQLPlus and I was wondering if there was any way of declaring a field as both a primary key and an autonumber??? I need to do this using ONLY SQL plus, not forms builder or anything else!

At the moment, the create table statement looks like:

create table customer
 (CUSTID number(4) not null primary key, ..........)

so can I turn CUSTID into an autonumber here?

Thanks

No, you can not do that.  You have to create a sequence then specify it in the insert command or write a trigger insert the sequence every insert. There is no default autonumber option in create table command as you wish.

Hope this helps
