|Subject||Re: [firebird-support] Two transactions can have the same TID?|
Thank you very much for your answer Helen.
I do backups every day, one full and several incrementals. Well, rather it is done automatically by my program.
I understand that each commited (and not commited, of course) row keeps the number of its TID, so that number is always present in the row. When after a cycle backup/restore the Next Transaction is 1 because all the integer numbers were used, what happens? that database cannot be used anymore for inserts, updates and deletes?
