hi, can we preset the auto increment value to certain start number ?

ie: i let the auto-increment column start with number like 10001 , any insertion of the table will then keep increase number to 10002, 10003 and so on ?

i'm using mysql 5.0

thank you

Yes, you can set this value. The Mysql manual explains how.
