How to drop sequence?

Hi,

I have table:
# \d category;
category_id | integer | not null default
nextval('public .category_categ ory_id_seq'::te xt)
category_name | character varying(100) | not null
Indexes: category_pkey primary key btree (category_id)

My goal is to remove sequence from category_id column and remove it after
from DB.

First I tried:

DROP SEQUENCE category_catego ry_id_seq - fails saying that table category
column category_id uses it

Than I tried:

ALTER TABLE category ALTER COLUMN category_id DROP DEFAULT;

Now category_id column is shown as integer not null only but :

DROP SEQUENCE category_catego ry_id_seq - fails saying that table category
column category_id uses it again
Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Igor

TIP 5: Have you checked our extensive FAQ?

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faqs/FAQ.html

Try

DROP SEQUENCE category_catego ry_id_seq CASCADE;

TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
joining column's datatypes do not match

I am going to drop a primary key from one column and create a new column to be used as primary key in an existing database. The old column was a date column which someone earlier though was a good candidate for a primary key which we all know it's not. Now I want to add a new field, i.e. called ID, with a normal number sequence as primary key. I have dropped the primary key, created the new column, created the new sequence and created...

I am building a data entry application using Java servlets. I had hoped to use drop down boxes to provide the user with data entry selections pulled from a database, but am now questioning, given the latency with which the data loads to the browser, whether drop down boxes are viable for providing a large number of select options. I've put nearly-identical examples of the problem on two different web/database hosts for review (I wanted...

I have a particular application that requires reordering objects by drag and drop, and I would like to do this with a web frontend. To be more precise: There are headlines and paragraphs stored in a database, but forcing the editors to put them into a certain sequence by entering a sequence number for every item (or clicking on an "up" button fifty times) would be much too cumbersome. So I want to give them an outline view of the text...

Hi everybody! I wonder if there is an sql command that increases a sequence value by one and returns such a value. I would like to manage an id inside a program that connects to the database through jdbc. I know that there is a command like: select next value for public.id_seq but this is not complete.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
