any problem with resetting the AI for order, invoice, and client


Recommended Posts



Before i got my DEV version i did some testing using my live version. I would like to be able to set the invoice table, order table, and client table AI (auto increment) values back to where they would have been.


First i dont want the gap, second i dont want accounting to question what happened to those invoices and client records because there is a gap of about 100 items.


I know how to reset the AI, just export the table, drop table, change the AI and import it back. However i want to be sure that this will not affect any other tables.


All of the test transactions have been deleted, as well as all of the test orders, and all of the test invoices, and all of the test clients.


So is it as simple as just export, drop, import, for the tblinvoices, tblclients, and tblorders, or do i need to consider other tables in the process as well? If so which tables might be involved?
