Sequence

< Back

A sequence allows you to add generated sequences of different types.

Sequence 1


Sequence type: Number


Arithmetic

Generates a sequence of numbers by adding a static value each step. Leading zeros allowed. Numbers are unique.
For example: 001, 002, 003, 004, 005 (Start = 001, Add = 1)

Order options

  • Ascending
  • Descending
  • Random

Note: Always enter the lowest number in the start field, no matter which order option you choose.


Geometric

Generates a sequence by adding a multiplied value each step. The greater the range (see export section) the faster the limit is reached. Leading zeros allowed. Numbers are unique.
For example: 001, 002, 004, 008, 016 (Start = 001, Ratio = 2)

Order options

  • Ascending
  • Descending
  • Random

Note: Always enter the lowest number in the start field, no matter which order option you choose.


Random

Generates numbers of a predefined length (max. 50) with random numbers (0-9). Numbers are NOT unique.
For example: 091, 212, 110, 316, 873 (Length = 3)


Current record number

Represents the current data record number. Offset will be added (negative offset allowed). Leading zeros allowed. Numbers are unique.
For example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5


Sequence type: String


Random

Generates a string of a predefined length (max. 50) with random characters. Strings are NOT unique. Strings are lowercase (Use element settings to transform e.g. to uppercase).
For example: zxd, azt, jup, xxm, mjd (length = 3)
