I m migrating a database from oracle to MySql.The database has many unique ID fields whose datatype is VARCHAR and they r automatically generated.Problem is thatthe id is combination of nuber with a charater prefix.The number is generated in sequence for each new record. and the prefix charater defines one of its attribute.In oracle this is achived by user defined SEQUENCES. Can we implement sequences in MYSQL?
Sequences r suupported in MySql?. Remember i knw that i can do this by defining seperate field which stores the attribute information stored in the id..but i don't want to do that.Since i have to use existing codebase so i cannot change table design...THANKS IN ADVANCE.
