Does anyone know a good way to find the first free integer number that does not exist in a table in a specified column? I can think of a couple of tedious ways of doing this but they are hardly elegant. Assume there could be any integer present up to 2 billion. Received on Tue Apr 07 2009 - 14:51:06 CDT
