How do I change the auto increment seed number in MySQL? The higher ups have voted against me on database design standards and now I have the need to start a AI field at 222000000, and I can't figure out how to do this.

Any and all help is appreciated. BTW it's MySQL running on windows.

If it is a MyISAM table, you can use MySQL Administrator and it's Table Editor and change it in the Advanced Options tab.

If you have phpMyAdmin, you can change it on the 'Operations' page for the table.  In either case, you need to make sure your column is at least int(9) to display all the numbers.

OR USE THE SQL:

ALTER TABLE `your_table` AUTO_INCREMENT =222000000

Excellent, thank you so much. I tried the sames setting in the MySQL workbench and it didn't work, but MySQL admin came thru. Thanks again.
