Is the Generator an INT64 ??
The documentation says it is an INT and when i tried to set the value
using interbaseworkbench I found that it was only allowing upto int

Is there any setting that i have to change to make generator an int64.

I would really like to use this idea but hesitate to do so when it is
only int
