IncludeIdentityValues Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The IncludeIdentityValues property controls the handling of existing values for a column with the Microsoft SQL Server identity property when data is copied to the SQL Server table.


object
.IncludeIdentityValues [= value]

object

An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list

value

TRUE or FALSE

Boolean

Read/write

HRESULT GetIncludeIdentityValues(LPBOOL pRetVal);
HRESULT SetIncludeIdentityValues(BOOL NewValue);

If TRUE, SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) runs a SET IDENTITY_INSERT ON statement when the ImportData method of a Table object is called.

If FALSE, SQL-DMO ignores any data values present for a column with the identity property. SQL Server generates data values for the column by using the column's setting for identity seed and increment. The default is FALSE.
