Have you faced this? Assume that you have created a Sequence object for generating values sequentially for tables which data type is set as int, and suddenly it shows the next number as -2147483648.
See below code;
-- creating sequence CREATE SEQUENCE [dbo].[OrderSequence] AS int START WITH 1 INCREMENT BY 1 MAXVALUE 2 CYCLE GO -- requesting numbers three times SELECT (NEXT VALUE FOR dbo.OrderSequence) AS OrderSequence GO 3
What could be the reason? If you analyze the code written above, you can easily find the issue. I have not used MINVALUE property when creating the Sequence, hence it takes the lowest value of the data type set for the Sequence, which is -2147483648 for int data type. You may experience the same, if so, check and see whether the MINVALUE has been set or not.
