SharePoint List ID column RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I started to enter information into my custom list which has the ID column, I received an error with one of my entries. I corrected the error behind the scene. However, when I return to re-enter my information, the ID column numbering skipped values. For example, my first entry is a #1, but my second entry is now #4. When I corrected the error, I didn't save my entry at the time, so why did the ID column skipped numeric values and can I fix it without having to create another list?

  • Hi, 

    You may have created a 2nd & a 3rd Item which had ID 2 and ID 3. 

    Even if you delete them, the next item that you will create will have the ID 4.
