I deleted list items that include an ID from the list and the recycle bin. When I create a new list item, the ID populates where the last line item left off.

For example, if the last ID was 5 and I delete the line item with ID 5, then I make a new line item, ID 6 is the new ID. How can I make the ID start at 1?

It might also help us if we knew what your requirements were. Why are you using list item IDs? –  Kit Menke May 27 '11 at 19:21

Save the list as a template and recreate the list. ID columns will always keep incrementing and will never be reused.
