    use auto_increment.

    If you want to use a higher value than 1 for your auto_increment value then either set up the table with it or use alter table to change it.

    It needs to be a myisam table and not innodb table though.

    create table testing(
    id int primary key auto_increment,
    firstname char(12),
    lastname char(12)
    ) type=myisam
    auto_increment = 34533
    and that value is the first one that will start in your id table.
