ROFL! I'm guessing from your anonymous username that you are just starting to peer out into the world beyond strictly non-standard Microsoft, to discover **standard** SQL and the myriad tricks and treats you have denied yourself until now! ;-) Good luck with autoincs in Oracle, by the way!

Learn the muscle-power of scripting your DDL - not least its ability to maintain a trail of database documentation that you keep to fit your own needs and the others' who will still be there when you leave. Poking in a bit of ad hoc DDL here and there through an interactive interface is not notably the most robust way to develop a database structure.. :-| It's astonishing how quickly you forget why you did that thing...
