"IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL is a non-deterministic function that returns the most recently assigned value for an identity column.


The function has no input parameters. The result is a DECIMAL(31,0) regardless of the actual data type of the identity column that the result value corresponds to.

The value returned is the value that was assigned to the identity column of the table identified in the most recent insert operation (specified in either an INSERT statement or a MERGE statement) ...

"You can retrieve the values for rows that are being inserted by specifying the INSERT statement in the FROM clause of a SELECT statement.

When you insert one or more rows into a table, you can select the result rows of the insert operation. These rows include any of the following values:

* The value of any generated column, such as identity, ROWID, or row change timestamp columns
* Any default values used for columns
* All values for all rows inserted by a multiple-row insert operation
* Values that were changed by a before insert trigger
