Hello. I'm working the "proper way" with creating the initial db schema via migrations and db/schema.rb. However, I have a bit of a special need, and need to know if anyone knows the solution to this; I need a sequence that is common to several tables - a "data id" that gives a sort of unique object number to every row in every table. Some associated tables (a documents table that can contain attachments to most any model to be exact) need this id as their foreign key counterpart. create_table "projects", :force => true do |t| t.column "data_id", :serial t.column "parent_id", :int t.column "customer_id", :int t.column "property_owner_id", :int t.column "name", :string t.column "long_description", :text t.column "created", :datetime end Now, I've done this all wrong, I know. The data_id field represented here creates a new sequence for each table, in this case named "projects_data_id_seq". I need all tables to use the same, preexisting sequence (data_id_seq). Do I need to specify the sql for this? Can anybody help me? :) Thanks :) -- Henning K.
