Hello,

if you make an Insert on a table with a serial,  you can get the last value
of the serial inserted by your session using:
SELECT currval('Sequence_name');

This is better and faster than any other solution. This ensures you to get
the last sequence number asigned to your session. Doesn't matter the number
of concurrent INSERTS made by other clients.

Regards

Miguel Juan

... You can't: some other task can do another insert between your insert and
your select, so you get the serial
of the other record, not yours !
