Hello All.
SQL Server 2019
What would cause the Identity number to go from?
(Real live examples)
------------ Example 1

122
1089
1090
1091


------------ Example 2

78
1044
1045
1046
1047
1048
1049
1050


I have one Identity that starts at a higher number, and it is specified in the
Identity Increment = 1
Identity Seed = 101

But none of the other tables have this behavior set.
Everything was working perfectly until today when I checked the records and saw that huge number jump.

Any idea's on this would be very helpful.
