In order to do that you should not make the id field autonumber...Put it as a number and the value of each new filed that you enter should be the greater value of id+1...This is the only solution

1-change id type from autonumber to number or int and put it unique or set it as primary key for performance
2-Select max(id) from table
3-$var=max(id)+1
4-insert into table(id,place) values($var,'dsfef')

If it you don't know how to make it work I can build the complete code for you

The point is that not reusing deleted records IDs is useful in certain circumstances: that's why, if the field is "autoincrement" previous "free" values are not reused
Autoincrement does guarantee that every new record as a unique ID, which i s also unique "over time".

In most situations you don't need to worry for holes and "missing numbers": to make it short, it does not cost a cent!

So, if these homes are really a nuisance, spend some time to turn around them: the suggested solutions will be helpful for that; if they are not a nuisance... let them happen as they will!
