Replication ID in New Records
Posted on 2013-06-03
I'm currently maintaining a system I built which is connected to an SQL database. The SQL database has two front end applications, 1) The native app that was built for this database and 2) my app, which extends the functionality of the original system.
It's a payroll system. And I've been asked to split one of the payments entered into multiple checks. The problem is that the table that I need to work with uses a field of data type NUMBER and field size REPLICATION ID. I need to split a single record into multiple records with different REPLICATION IDs, but I don't know how to generate a REPLICATION ID.
If this were an AutoNumber field, it would be easy to accomplish, but it's not.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
