Sharepoint list id numbering

chas805 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10

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.
