How would i reset the value, i have deleted every row but the id number still comes up as 300 or 301, 302 ect when i create a new row.
how would i make this 0 ?

alter table (table name) drop column (id column)
alter table (table name) add column (id column) mediumint not null auto_increment
I type that a lot when people join my club twice.

I believe you can specifically set the next auto-increment value using:
"ALTER TABLE $tbl_name AUTO_INCREMENT = $value"
Where $value is whatever you want the id to be, although I've not tried it myself :cool:

i reset the auto inc value in phpmyadmin then looked at the code and this is what was returned:
$sql = 'ALTER TABLE tablename PACK_KEYS =0 CHECKSUM =0 DELAY_KEY_WRITE =0 AUTO_INCREMENT =1';
hope it helps
