I like a simple Oracle SQL like the following so each run I will get a increment number by 1.  Please help.  It can be a sequence or anything you can think of.  Thanks.

select myseq from dual;

001
002
003
...
998
999

Not sure what context you mean by "sql" but your requirement limits your sequence to 000 - 999, thats expected, right?
