Select Auto Increment Table and Column

Use this dialog to select the table\column for an auto-increment column setting in your data dictionary.

The dialog has been optimized to only display tables that are system tables, or are related parents of the current table. Normally, you will only want to use columns from a system table or a related parent as accumulators for auto-increment columns. A checkbox is provided to switch the dialog to displaying all tables for the current workspace.

Expand the desired table's tree item then select the column that you want to use. Click on the OK button or double-click the tree item. The selected table.column is placed in the Auto Increment setting for the current column.

When you use this dialog to choose an Auto Increment Table.Column, Data Dictionary Modeler will automatically check if it is a system table and add it to the External Tables structure if it is not already there.
