Hi All,

In my database I have the following table with a serial column.  All of the
data has been deleted from the table.  I would like to know if the sequence
can be reset such that the next time a record is written into the table it
will have a value of 1.  TIA

# \d inventory.tbl_detail
   Table "inventory.tbl_detail"
     Column     |          Type          | Modifiers                         
 inventory_id   | integer                | not null default
 inventory_date | date                   | not null
 inventory_type | character varying(20)  | not null
 note           | character varying(511) | 
    "tbl_detail_pkey" PRIMARY KEY, btree (inventory_id)
Foreign-key constraints:
    "tbl_detail_fkey1" FOREIGN KEY (inventory_type) REFERENCES
inventory.tbl_type(inventory_type) ON UPDATE CASCADE ON DELETE RESTRICT

Kind Regards,
