Ok, somehow three records were deleted from my database. In the ID column, which is an autonumber field and is the primary key, it literally skips three numbers -- 1, 30 and 214 -- and the corresponding records are missing. (No snide remarks about the "Are yoy sure you want to PERMANENTLY DELETE this record?" warning, please.) Is there any way I can re-enter the information for these records and -- here's the tough part -- restore the records' original ID numbers, so they appear sequentially in the table, where they belong (with no skipped numbers)? Meaning, rather than being positioned as, say, 232, 233 and 234, they can be 1, 30 and 214? I tried (1) entering the three records, then (2) sorting my records the way I want by sorting according to the values in a different field, then (3) deleting the ID field in "design view", then (3) re-creating a new ID field in "design view". But when I went back to the table view it still just re-sorted the records, and assigned ID numbers to them according to the order in which they were entered -- meaning these three were repositioned at the end of the table, instead of in rows 1, 30 and 214, (and numbered correspondingly) where I want them. As you can tell, I could use some help. Thanks in advance.
