Document ID auto increment

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a standard document library that I'm adding documents to.  I would expect that the 'ID' property to auto-increment by 1 each time I upload a document, but the column is being incremented by 5.  Is this a setting I can change somewhere to have it increment by 1 instead?  Thanks.

SharePoint Batch Update Auto Increment Field Value


Hello All,

a simple way to auto-increment INT by 1 ?

Hi,   I have a field of datatype INT declared as follows  [barCodeID] int IDENTITY(1, 1) NOT NULL Each time I insert a new record into the table, barCodeID increments by 2, not by 1. Why so and can I make it increment by 1? I also tried [barCodeID] int IDENTITY(0 , 1) NOT NULL which produces exactly the same result, so what the first digit(seed) actually defines ? Thanks -- as you can see I'm a complete newbie

do not see auto increment after insert


hello all,


i'm a newbee, so maybee a simple question

i have a parent table, with , lets say an id, and another field

i have another table, the child table which uses the id of the parent, for the master-detail relation.

the id is defined as datatype int, allow nulls = no, unique = yes, primary key = yes, identity=true, identityIncrement=1, identitySeed=1

so the id is auto incremented.


i am using ado.net and have a SqlCeDataAdapter, and SqlCeCommand to set InsertCommand

when inserting data and calling the Update() method of the SqlCeDataAdapter, reload the table, i see a nice id.

but, before the table is updated, the Id field is empty, and i would like to see what the id is, because i have also a child table which uses this id.

so, how can i see the id, or how can i add the values to the child, and use a reference (the id or something else) before updating the table ? or is it better to use another technique. I would like to work with the dataset because the data is loaded in memory, and will not save everytime the changes. 

if you know some nice samples, please let me know.

thanks ! andy

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

jQuery $(document).ready() and ASP.NET Ajax asynchronous postback

Many call it the ASP.NET jQuery postback problem, but using the technique below should make it no problem anymore. $(document).ready() isn't called after an asynchronous postback. What this means? You lose the functionality that should be executed within $(document).ready() after an UpdatePanel rendered its contents after an asynchronous postback.

SharePoint Document Workspaces for Developers

Office 2003 is being released this month, and a cast of supporting applications is already available. One of these is Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, the free team add-on for Windows Server 2003. If you're not familiar with SharePoint Services basics, take a look at What Developers Need to Know About Windows SharePoint Services. In this article, I'm going to drill into one key place where SharePoint and Office 2003 overlap: document workspaces
