Issue/Introduction

Using the following function in any numeric column:
@nextval(td1,1)@

Although set to 1, it always publishes into the database with a 2 to start.
Does 'nextval' actually have a starting value of 1?

 

Environment

Test Data Manager (TDM)
Datamaker 
TDM Portal

Resolution

When creating a new nextval starting with 1, in the process of resolving the expression to check its validity, it gets incremented to 2.
