How to get the currval for all sequences in one SQL query

I need a sql query that will give me the currval of all sequences in one go. How might I do that? I'm only aware of how to get currval like this:

SELECT MySequence.CURRVAL from dual;

Thanks for any assistance.

CURRVAL is only good for the same session that executed NEXTVAL.

Look at user_sequences:
select sequence_name, last_number from user_sequences;
0

but isn't that the last number in the cache, not necessarily the current number?

current number is relative to the session that created it.

Log into sqlplus from two separate windows and do the following:

select mySeq.nextval from dual;
select mySeq.curval from dual;

Both windows will show a different CURRVAL.

IF you have called nextval for every sequence then you could try something like this...


SELECT sequence_name,
TO_NUMBER(EXTRACTVALUE(
DBMS_XMLGEN.getxmltype('select ' || sequence_name || '.currval from dual'),
'/ROWSET/ROW/X'
))
current_value FROM user_sequences;

note, all caveats detailed above by slightwv still apply here,

if any of the sequences have NOT been defined by a call to nextval you'll get an ORA-8002 when you try to query currval

oops ,small correction to query above ( I forgot the alias x )


SELECT sequence_name,
EXTRACTVALUE(
DBMS_XMLGEN.getxmltype('select ' || sequence_name || '.currval x from dual'),
'/ROWSET/ROW/X'
)
current_value
FROM user_sequences;
