  • 003623 , 003621 is SharePoint default item ID ? if not, can you post view with item ID column into it. – Monica Jagani Jun 6 '17 at 8:23

Seen it happen only once before,

The thing is, ID is not sequential, it is a unique number per list, created (never updated!) by SharePoint on Item creation.

If the underlying database at time N encounters a problem (maybe multiple requests/edits at the same time) it can happen that ID skips a number

or so we concluded many moons ago,

thus we decided you can not rely on ID being sequential
