Hi,
we need to replicate a new database and would like to change the auto-increment on all columns with autonumber to a different seed to properly setup the merge replication.
is there some type of script we can execute to go through all columns in all tables and do this automatically to any auto-incremented field?

THANKS!

you could do this:
exec sp_msforeachtable ' DBCC CHECKIDENT ( ''?'' , RESEED , 600000 ) '

of course. you can put any logic in the the ' sql ' part you want.
however, I think it would be better (professional) to setup the list of tables and their new values, generate the script from there, and run the script...
