  • You can't set the ID, SharePoint manages this.  You can however create a new column to store your number.

  • Jitendra,

    As Dave said that ID column is manageable only by Sharepoint. So probably if you can describe your scenario and we can suggest you some workaround.

  • HI,

    The ID field is system generated one and it is not nullable.

    This is int only.

    Thanks, Rahul Rashu

  • Actually when we create entity class for sharepoint list then it generates id field as int?


    I want  it as int not nullable.


    So is it possible.
