yes, the first one sets the id to 0, so when the next record is inserted sql server takes the current id, adds 1, and gets 1. the next one the first id i would get is 2.

Also, @kin, power pivot shows up with the application name "Microsoft Office 2010". I set it up to block anythign with "Office" and it seems to work. Testing it out with my boss now.

@AaronBertrand very rarely, mainly when we need to clear out the data in a database after testing has been done. Once a database hits production we don't clear the data.
