I have a question.  I was debugging a problem.  I used begin transaction and rollback transaction.  The result was that the index which is auto incremented created a record and removed it.

I have a request to fix the table so there is not gap between the numbers.  Example 1, 2, 3, --, 5.

Is there a way to renumber 5 to 4 and then continue from there without skipping a number?
