Sure.  :)

In DB2 they're call "identity" columns.  Nothing more than an integer that increments (usually by 1) every time a row is inserted.  The column can be defined so that the insert must accept the value generated by DB2, or have DB2 generate a value only when a value isn't stored.


CREATE TABLE any
(
  AutoColumn integer not null identity;
...
);


Good Luck,
Kent
