    First off, what difference does it make what the number is? If its an autonumber, it probably is use only as a unique record identifier.

    Now having said that, if you would like it to start over from 1, then after you delete your records, then you will need to run a compact and repair. Access, will continue to number sequentially from the last number used in an autonumber situation unless you take this step.
