Dumping sequence values with a Data tool
The procedure for dumping sequence values is similar to dumping table contents.
To dump sequence values:
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 Values. The Data tool prompts you for the file you want to write the sequence values to. The default filename is _seqvals.d.
4. Specify the filename or use the default value. After dumping the sequence values, 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.
