A sequence (also called a “generator” in Firebird) is a stored variable containing a shared value for different tables and data. Sequences generally serve to implement the current auto-increment values in databases tables. To show the “Sequences” management dialog box, select “Project | Sequences”.

Note that sequences are not supported by all the RDBMSs compatible with ERBuilder Data Modeler. For example, MySQL does not support sequences, whereas Firebird does.
