- Trail File Creation and Maintenance:

As each new file is created, it inherits the two-character
trail name appended with a unique nine digit sequence number
from 000000000 through 999999999 (for example c:\ggs\dirdat\tr000000001).
When the sequence number reaches 999999999, the numbering
starts over at 000000000, and previous trail files are overwritten.

However, Even when sequence number in trail file reaches the maximum value, does not start from 0.

In GoldenGate 18c and earlier, the sequence number exceeds the maximum value, and Extract Process is abended.
