I'm also wrong, but i learned something. Could someone please explain, why is the identity resetted after a truncate? For me is a possible source of inconsitency.


TRUNCATE command apart from removing data from the table, resets the seed value of the identity column defined in the table.

Another command to re-seed identity is DBCC CHECKIDENT. It can be used something like below:
DBCC CHECKIDENT ('test_trun', RESEED, 0)

Not sure why you said this as "inconsistency"...it's just the property of TRUNCATE command!

bcoz it is its behavior that every time we execute TRUNCATE command it will reset the identity value..

Because conceptually, TRUNCATE TABLE is closer to DROP / CREATE than to DELETE.

Another good one. 19% wrong right now Blink

Yes, a good one. And in the last 6 hours the wrong rate has grown from 19% to 27%, which seems rather high for such an easy question.

As Lokesh has already explained, resetting the identity seed is a characteristic of the 'truncate' command. If you want to retain the seed then you use 'delete' instead. So, there's no inconsistency, it is just a case of using the right command according to your needs.

At least you learnt something, so from that point of view it is a good question. ;-)

Hello, if resetting the identity is a possible source of inconsistency you may try using DELETE instead of TRUNCATE. DELETE will remove the data without resetting the identity.
