    Hello,

    I have deleted a record from the table with record ID 114 and now trying to restore it but couldn't able to add the record with same ID 114, i tried to restore it through import option but it ends with error message of record ID, I hope the record it still available in database.

    You cannot revive a deleted record. In general [Record ID#] values should not have any significance.

    Do we have any possibility to add the record in place of missing [Record ID#] i noticed that Record ID is not modifiable, if we have any chance then please suggest

    I suppose you could create a new table and port over all your existing data including a manually reconstructed record for the deleted one. However, you have to do extra work to rebuild the relationships to the new table and delete the old table.

    I think it is better advice to not rely on the significance of the [Record ID#] value.

    Sameerr, if it is important to retain the 114 as an identifier if the record, you can enter a new record and have a field called identifier override.

    Then use a formula such as

    If ([Identifier override] > 0 , [Idenifier override], [Record ID#])

    Then show that field in view mode on Forms and on Reports.
