UPDATE tablename AUTO_INCREMENT=1;

This is what I get -
mysql> update Visit3 auto_increment=1;
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the
manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right
syntax to use near '=1' at line 1
Same error if auto_increment is in caps.
What did I do wrong?
Thanks in advance.
