I need my procedure to simply find the max of tblSQLTest2.ContactID and + 1 when fetching old data from table COMPANY.

I am unable to simply set the field to indentity as the table in under merge replication.

I know this code doesnts work, but it should give a clear impression of what I need.. Ive tried searching books online and msdn with no luck.

cheers


INSERT INTO [testwasp].[dbo].[tblSQLTest2]
(
    [ContactID],  
    [Name],
    [Title],
    [Email],
    [Tel]
)

  SELECT 
     ContactID(MAX) + 1,
     Contact1, 
     Position1, 
     Email1, 
     Tel1
   
FROM Company, tblSQLTest2

try like this using a function which returns the maxid+1

--function returns maxid + 1
create function f_ts()
returns int
as
begin
declare @t int
select @t = max(id) + 1 from ttt
Return @t
End
--destination table
create table ttt(col1 int, col2 varchar(20), id int)
insert ttt
Select 1, 'raju', 1 union all
Select 1, 'viju', 2

--source table table
create table rr(col1 int, col2 varchar(20))
insert rr
Select 5, 'visu' union all
Select 6, 'ram'

--perform insert statement
insert ttt
Select col1, col2, dbo.f_ts()
from rr

Hi,

Declare @Id Int

Select @id = max(ContactID) From tblSQLTest2

Now insert all records into a temp table

Declare @t table (I int identity(1, 1), Contact1 varchar, Position1 varchar, Email1 varchar,
Tel1 varchar)

Insert into @t
SELECT
Contact1,
Position1,
Email1,
Tel1

FROM Company, tblSQLTest2

Now insert this into u r main table


INSERT INTO [testwasp].[dbo].[tblSQLTest2]
(
[ContactID],
[Name],
[Title],
[Email],
[Tel]
)

SELECT
@id + i,
Contact1,
Position1,
Email1,
Tel1

FROM @t

thank you both PB and Peter.

Peter your method worked perfectly, although I had to declare the size of the varchar in the declaration of the temporary table.

thanks again :)
