nicko22 created the topic: Record ID

Hi,

I'm building a new site for our charity. We use the record id as a unique identifier for each who registers through the website.

The new website record ids are starting at 1 then 2 then 3 etc. However some of these record numbers will conflict with existing records on our google sheets.

Is there a way to set the record ids to start at 4000? This will allow us to continue using the record id as a unique identifier

Thanks in Advance

Hello there,

Best way to do this would be to RESET the ID completley, and this is how you can do it

If you want to reset ID to start counting from 1 again you will have to use SQL Truncate command in phpMyAdmin, be prepared that you will delete all records you got, so do you really want that?

Go to phpMyAdmin and find #_facileforms_records table, then run SQL query
TRUNCATE TABLE `yourPrefix_facileforms_records`
and click Go. Now if you submit yoru form and go to Manage Records it will start counting from 1 again.

Let us know if that worked for you.

Regards,
Mario

Hi Mario,

Thanks for your reply.

What I want to happen is for records to start at 4000 instead of 1.

Is that possible?

Thanks

Hi

You can do that also this is the query you need :
ALTER TABLE #__facileforms_records AUTO_INCREMENT=4000;

Just replace # with your DB prefix and you are good to go.
