Crazy SQL Server Syntax

Filed under: Uncategorized — Zack Bethem @ 10:38 pm

Crazy, but I must admit the convenience. This came up after loading a table. I needed to generate an incremented value in the SQL Server database. Normally, you could do this by setting the column to be of type IDENTITY. I didn’t have the luxury and didn’t want to reload it anyway.

SQL Command:
declare @intCounter int
set @intCounter = 234234  — some random number

–set the column and increment
update stage_conference
set @intCounter = conference_id = @intCounter + 3 

Thanks to Google, which landed me here.
