Drop your foreign keys.  Write and run scripts to renumber your Id's .  Then readd your foreign keys

What is the reason for doing this?  There may be better alternatives both for renumbering and to renumbering.

In fact what I want to change is the Ref ID which is the the key value of all tables.. After getting advices from all experts, I think I would like to do it in other way rather changing this so important field.

Thanks for your input.
