newbie question ... I have a MySQL table where I want to update (renumber) the primary numeric key field.

- I successfully turned field off as a primary key index and UN auto incremented it
- then created new sequential numbers for it
- then turned back on primary key index and re added auto increment in

BUT when I make a new record it does NOT  start where new numbers stop

last is 51
next should be 52

but jumps to 157

Q: is there a way to reset the NEXT SERIAL ID NUMBER somewhere? how do I fix this?

Thanks - RevDave
