What do you mean by a generated key? An identity key? If yes, you can change
the identity to accept the value from an insert operation. Look at By
Default on identity keys in CREATE TABLE or ALTER TABLE.

The only trick is if you insert records using existing keys it does update
the next identity key stored in the table. You need to issue an alter table
and reset the next identity key to be higher than the current highest key.
(look at As Identity Start with).
