I've looked in the archives searching on oid and 'access' (microsoft)
to see how others have handled migration from data bases in ms-access
to postgresql. MS access has an auto-inc field that is used frequently
as a uniq id. Seems the OID has the same function. Yet, I've seem
parts of messages that say not to use the OID in that manner, but
nothing seems 'definitive'.
Can I use an OID as a foreign key in another table?
If not, what is the prefered method for replicating the auto-inc field
that ms-access users are so fond of... a 'sequence'?
