Mark Broadbent had to increment all of his sequences by 10,000. Here’s how he did it:
The only problem with this approach is that our database was configured (rightly or wrongly) with approximately 250 sequences! Since we could not be sure which sequences would ultimately cause us problems we decided to increment each one by 10,000.
Not being someone who likes performing monotonous tasks and also recognising the fact that this task would probably need to be performed again in the future I decided to attempt to programmatically solve this problem.
The script isn’t too difficult to understand but let me reiterate his warning: read the script before you run it, and know exactly what it’s doing before you run it.
