I have inherited a VERY old Mapics System running on Oracle8i Release 8.1.7.0.0 - Production

I need to know where I could look to find Current numbers, next available numbers and Max Number using PSQL on specific tables

What numbers?

If the system is using Oracle Sequences you can get a list of them from the ALL_SEQUENECES view:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/A87860_01/doc/server.817/a76961/ch273.htm#70966

Specifically the sequence_name, last_number and max_value columns.
