I'm trying to see if I can update a column with a sequences NEXTVAL with a trigger set to be
called prior to an insert call.
I have not had much luck. I can't seem to reference the sequence name in the trigger, even
taking a stab at using a referencing clause for it. I even tried to create a sequence within
Looking at the syntax diagram in the InfoCenter, I think I'm coming to the conclusion that
I can only assign literal values to a column.
Is this correct, or can someone provide an example of referencing a sequence within a trigger
to update a column?
thanks for any help,
