Question Regarding Auto Increment Field

P: n/a
Hi,
I have a requirement in which I need to create an auto increment
column in a file which will be unique. The following is what I am
trying to do.
1) I need to use DDS to define the file
2) The auto-increment field can go upto a 5 digit numeric value.
3) As the records from this file will be deleted at regular
intervals.I need the ability to recycle deleted record numbers after
the 5 digit limit has been reached.

I need some suggestions on how to handle this problem and I am looking
for the best practice solution for a situation like this.
Thanks in advance,

-Santosh
