The following resets the ID in SQL. Not positive about SQLLite. You could do

DELETE FROM tablename
DBCC CHECKIDENT('tablename', RESEED,0)

Open in new window

it says DBCC syntax error. It doesnt understand command.
Anyway I fixed my problem with the line:

DELETE FROM SQLITE_SEQUENCE WHERE NAME = 'tablename'
