SET GENERATOR

Available in: DSQL, ESQL

Better alternative: 2.0 use ALTER SEQUENCE

Description

(Re)initializes a generator or sequence to the given value. From Firebird 2 onward, the SQL-compliant ALTER SEQUENCE syntax is preferred.

Syntax

 SET GENERATOR generator-name TO <new-value>

 <new-value> ::= A 64-bit integer.

Warning: Once a generator or sequence is up and running, you should not tamper with its value (other than retrieving next values with GEN_ID or NEXT VALUE FOR) unless you know exactly what you are doing.
