------------------------------------------------
Table name is "A"
------------------------------------------------
1 Michle Administrator
2 John Consumer Finance Officer
3 Jackson Employer
4 Goeffery Empl0yer
------------------------------------------------
Here the identity column is the first one. Now if i delete the 2nd row the this table becomes like that
------------------------------------------------
Table name is "A"
------------------------------------------------
1 Michle Administrator
3 Jackson Employer
4 Goeffery Empl0yer
------------------------------------------------
Now i have an another table "B" having same structure (3 columns and first column is the identity column). Now if i move the all the data from table "A" to table "B" then the original seqeunce is distrubed the table "B" contains the data like this.

------------------------------------------------
Table name is "B"
------------------------------------------------
1 Michle Administrator
2 Jackson Employer

How are you moving the data? Through SQL statements? Through the EM Import Wizard?

Anyhow, the answer is enabling "identity insert" in your target table B. This option can only be active for one table at any given moment, and is usually turned on, data copied, then turned off again.

I'd argue though that the id field in table B shouldn't be an identity at all. You can still make it a primary key, but it's not really an identity field.

Without knowing more about your DB's design, it's hard to say though.
