Starting Order Number

Thread began 9/03/2009 6:46 pm by larsentim278054 | Last modified 9/04/2009 7:49 pm by larsentim278054 | 929 views | 4 replies


I looked at that table in PHPMyAdmin - but I don't see where I can add a value. If I edit that table - ORDERID - there's a place for "Default" value, but what is that? something that will be appended to the number? I don't see any "auto increment value".

If I did it with a SQL command, what would that do - set the starting point? or is that what it would add to each order, so it would be order # 1000, then the next would be #2000 ?

  If you are talking about the auto incrementing id column of your orders table then you can set the auto increment value in MySQL Administrator for that table, just open it and in the advanced options you can set the auto increment value.

You can also do this with an SQL command like this:


If you change the auto increment initial value like this keep in mind the limit to this field will be 4294967295, not likely that you will reach this limit but it is something you should be aware of.
