How to auto increment with 1 after deleting data from a MySQL table?

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, you can use TRUNCATE TABLE command. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable1796
     (
     StudentId int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
     StudentName varchar(20)
     );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable1796(StudentName) values('Chris Brown');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1796(StudentName) values('David Miller');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1796(StudentName) values('John Doe');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement

mysql> select * from DemoTable1796;

This will produce the following output

+-----------+--------------+
| StudentId | StudentName  |
+-----------+--------------+
|         1 | Chris Brown  |
|         2 | David Miller |
|         3 | John Doe     |
+-----------+--------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to delete records from the table −

mysql> delete from DemoTable1796;
Query OK, 3 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Now insert a record into the table

mysql> insert into DemoTable1796(StudentName) values('John Doe');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> select * from DemoTable1796;
+-----------+-------------+
| StudentId | StudentName |
+-----------+-------------+
|         4 | John Doe    |
+-----------+-------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Now you can use TRUNCATE TABLE command

mysql> truncate table DemoTable1796;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Now, let us insert some records into the table

mysql> insert into DemoTable1796(StudentName) values('John Doe');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> select * from DemoTable1796;
+-----------+-------------+
| StudentId | StudentName |
+-----------+-------------+
|         1 | John Doe    |
+-----------+-------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
