Subject Migrating from Access to Firebird (Where are the autoincrement fields?)
Author Henrique Lobo Weissmann
Hi again,

I´m thinking about migrate my old database (in the MS Access format) to the Firebird format. But, reading here and there, trying to make this migration a small doubt come to my mind: where are the autoincrement fields in Firebird? Does Firebird have anything like these autoincremental fields that exists in databases such as Access and Paradox? If does, how can I declare a field to be of this type and, most important, when migrating my old database (MS Access) to firebird, will I loose these fields or they will be translated using the type Integer or something like it?
