[OT] SQL question

Hi all, 

thanks for giving some thought. After more lost hair, this appears to work:

INSERT INTO test2 (id,UUID,nummer) VALUES (3,1,(SELECT MAX(value) FROM (SELECT erste_nummer AS VALUE FROM test1 WHERE test1.UUID='1' UNION SELECT max(nummer) AS VALUE FROM test2 where test2.UUID='1') AS t1)+1)

The Problem is, that postGreSQL appears to be locking tables only during the transaction and automagically releases the lock, which is not ideal in my situation.

All the best,
