Change the Value of IDENTITY Column to "NO" in EP then Save, Then Switch it back to "YES" and Save the Table.

Checks the current identity value for the specified table and, if needed, corrects the identity value.

    ( 'table_name'
        [ , { NORESEED
                | { RESEED [ , new_reseed_value ] }


Is the name of the table for which to check the current identity value. Table names must conform to the rules for identifiers. For more information, see Using Identifiers. The table specified must contain an identity column.


Specifies that the current identity value should not be corrected.


Specifies that the current identity value should be corrected.


Is the value to use in reseeding the identity column.

If necessary, DBCC CHECKIDENT corrects the current identity value for a column. The current identity value is not corrected, however, if the identity column was created with the NOT FOR REPLICATION clause (in either the CREATE TABLE or ALTER TABLE statement).

Invalid identity information can cause error message 2627 when a primary key or unique key constraint exists on the identity column.

The specific corrections made to the current identity value depend on the parameter specifications.
