Dumping sequence definitions
You can dump sequence definitions and values using either Data tool. The tools store the sequence definitions in the full database schema definition file that you name, and the sequence values in a separate _seqvals.d file (or the file you name). You can dump definitions and values separately.
To dump sequence definitions:
1. Access the appropriate Data tool (the Data Administration tool if you are using a graphical interface or the Data Dictionary if you are using a character interface).
2. Make sure that the database containing the sequences you want to dump or load is the current working database.
3. Choose Admin > Dump Data and Definitions > Sequence Definitions. The Data tool prompts you for the file where you want to write the sequence definitions. The default filename is _seqdefs.df.
4. Specify the filename or use the default value. After dumping the sequence definitions, the Data tool displays a status message and prompts you to continue.
5. Choose OK to return to the Data Administration or Data Dictionary main window.
