I created a column in a table with datatype uniqueidentifier which is set as Row GUID and the default value to newsequentialid().I get the following error when I try to save the table Error validating default value for column ' Column Name'. Let's hope it would work on the remote sql server I'm about to upload the data to next week. Is there a way to set the default value to a constant value.For example, I have a status field which links to a table with different status values.If an application must generate an identifier column that is unique across the database, or every database on every networked computer in the world, use the uniqueidentifier data type and the NEWID (Transact-SQL) or NEWSEQUENTIALID() function.The Database Engine does not automatically generate values for the column.
Having used the upsizing wizard to move my Access2003 Jet-synchronized DB to SQL 2005 I find the rowguid-field with (newsequentialid()) as Default-Value.Important On Azure SQL Database Managed Instance, this T-SQL feature has certain behavior changes. ] table_name ( [ PERIOD FOR SYSTEM_TIME ( system_start_time_column_name , system_end_time_column_name ) ] ) [ WITH ( can be a maximum of 128 characters, except for local temporary table names (names prefixed with a single number sign (#)) that cannot exceed 116 characters.See Azure SQL Database Managed Instance T-SQL differences from SQL Server for details for all T-SQL behavior changes. ] table_name [ AS File Table ] ( [ ,...n ] [ PERIOD FOR SYSTEM_TIME ( system_start_time_column_name , system_end_time_column_name ) ] ) [ ON ] [ TEXTIMAGE_ON ] [ FILESTREAM_ON ] [ WITH ( [ FILESTREAM ] [ COLLATE collation_name ] [ SPARSE ] [ MASKED WITH ( FUNCTION = ' mask_function ') ] [ CONSTRAINT constraint_name [ DEFAULT constant_expression ] ] [ IDENTITY [ ( seed,increment ) ] [ NOT FOR REPLICATION ] [ GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW [ HIDDEN ] ] [ NULL | NOT NULL ] [ ROWGUIDCOL ] [ ENCRYPTED WITH ( COLUMN_ENCRYPTION_KEY = key_name , ENCRYPTION_TYPE = , ALGORITHM = ' AEAD_AES_256_CBC_HMAC_SHA_256' ) ] [ [ , ...n ] ) ] [ ON ] | [ FOREIGN KEY ] REFERENCES referenced_table_name [ ( ref_column ) ] [ ON DELETE ] [ ON UPDATE ] [ NOT FOR REPLICATION ] | CHECK [ NOT FOR REPLICATION ] ( logical_expression ) ] [ , ...n ] ) ] [ ON ] | FOREIGN KEY ( column [ ,...n ] ) REFERENCES referenced_table_name [ ( ref_column [ ,...n ] ) ] [ ON DELETE ] [ ON UPDATE ] [ NOT FOR REPLICATION ] | CHECK [ NOT FOR REPLICATION ] ( logical_expression ) --Memory optimized CREATE TABLE Syntax CREATE TABLE [database_name .

You do not specify columns because a File Table has a fixed schema.If you have any questions about your program membership or access to Collaborate, please contact [email protected] Microsoft Office program is now hosted on Microsoft Collaborate.After some investigation we figured out that we could use the new OS function Uuid Create Sequential with some byte scrambling to convince the rest of SQL engine that guids are produced in sequential order.FYI, this is a sample 'uniqueidentifier' value: 41cbbcd0-95fe-4c8f-9985-8b4ee8c5e49c Mike, There you have the answer to my question!
