Reply with quote

Hi,

I am going to use the following query for generating the randon number for program A.

SELECT DECIMAL (RAND() * 999999999999 ,12,0)
DECIMAL (RAND() * 999999999999 ,12,0)
INTO :HV-1
:HV-2
FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1
WITH UR

Question:
If the same query used by program B (In parallel with A). Is there any chance of duplicate random number generated by A and B if they run parallel.

Thanks in advance

Yes, I hope. But the probability is very low.
