How to call Oracle sequence via SQL server 2005 linked server

Hello Experts,

I am having trouble inserting rows into a Oracle table (which has a sequence generator) via SQL server 2005 linked server. If i dont include the column it errors out saying
'"ORA-01400: cannot insert NULL into ("STKANAQA_USER1"."KC_GEM_EVENT"."EVENTID") "

EventId is the column which is being enforced by sequential value. I am not sure how to call it from SQL server.

Insert OPENQUERY(STKANAQA,'select eventtypeid,eventdate,messageid from kc_gem_Event')

select '9',getutcdate(),messageid  from current_diff_gen

The preferred method is to create an Oracle stored procedure to do the insert and execute that from SQL Server passing the 3 columns you generate there.  

If that is not possible, you might try this technique  (and I'm assuming you are inserting a single record here):

Declare @Next As Int

Select @Next = Next
From OpenQuery(STKANAQA, 'Select YOURSEQ.NEXTVAL as Next FROM DUAL')

Insert OPENQUERY(STKANAQA,'select eventid, eventtypeid,eventdate,messageid from kc_gem_Event')

select @Next, '9',getutcdate(), messageid  from current_diff_gen
