Instead of using an data area, I use an SQL sequence object (which is"store next available numbers(Faster)."
nothing else than a data area).
In an sequence object a couple (depending on the cache you defined) of next
numbers are in the pipeline and you do not have to determine the next number
The next number is retrieved simply by requesting the next one:
Exec SQL Set :MyNxtNo = Next Value for :MySequence;
