Sharepoint list id numbering

Hi

I have a infopath document library that auto increments the next form number from the previous id value in the library.  I cannot seem to modify this id field value as it is designated by SharePoint, I believe.  I have a requirement to start records on this library from 1000.  I do not wish to create 999 infopath forms to reach this figure.  Is there anyway to manipulate this id field value in SharePoint?  Or should I use another way to autoincrement form numbers? I am using vb.net code to submit the form.

Regards

Cheers Folks

I now know you cannot control the SP list id number, thanks. As you say create your own id number.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
