This may be only slightly related, but thought I'd share.
I used this solution for creating sequential carton labels for shipping.
I created a procedure that populates a table of sequential numbers by feeding in parameters from a SSRS report. In this case I feed the beginning and ending number.
CREATE PROCEDURE SEQUENTIAL
DECLARE @start INT
DECLARE @end INT
SELECT @start = @BEG_NUM, @end = @END_NUM
WHILE @start <= @end
INSERT INTO BUR20VM.dbo.SEQUENTIAL_TABLE(CTN_NUM_SEQ)
SET @start = @start + 1
I then use the resulting table results in a cross join with another table, to get the label output.
I should also note, when I go to run the next sequence of numbers (for the next shipment), the SSRS report first EXECutes a second stored procedure to delete all values from the previosly created SEQUENTIAL_TABLE, and then re-populates with the new sequence of numbers.
I think this is a good illustration of a real world application for the sequential table. :-)
