This always happens, unless you insert the id's manually you cannot get around this.

Imagine you have this:

Id             field

1               icecream
2               worldcup
3               italy
4               pancake
5               blah
6               something

if you deleted worldcup and italy you would have:

1               icecream
4               pancake
5               blah
6               something

Unless you insert the ID yourself using something like this:

DECLARE @id int
SET @Id = (SELECT Max(Id) FROM Table) + 1

INSERT INTO Table (Id, field) VALUES (@Id, 'new field value' )

you cannot change the increment to reindex the lot (unless you drop the colum, and re insert it and reapply the increment )
