Why don't you create a new file in production? Do you need to move data to production as well? If so, I'm also new to Identity columns (just put in two files with them for the first time). Can you copy the old file to the new and it knows to not copy the identity columns and instead starts setting the identity based at your starting number as defined in the table?

Subject: reset auto increment field.

I have a file that I have an auto increment field in. Currently the file is in development and I would like to clean up the auto incremented field before it goes to production.

I know its not absolutely necessary, but I'd like to anyway.

I have tried the following "alter table mytable alter column tiid reset with 1"

I get a message that the alter completed, but I don't see any difference in the tiid column.

What am I doing wrong with this statement?
Is this there another way to do this?
I'm on V6R1.
