If someone inserts a record it starts at 1 and then every record there increases by one automatically so, 2, 3, 4 and so on. Is there a way to make it start at 17589 and then just auto inc from there ie: 17589 then next record will be 17590 and so on. If i try type 17589 as a default value for this column in the table it gives me an error and won't let me save it like that.
