Record ID (Autonumber) increments by 1 even when New Data Form NOT saved

Guys Any ideas why when i open up page ( Client_NewEdit with microflow) to add a new form entry BUT decide not to proceed, ( ie no new record added ) the record ID says 7. I dont proceed and close the browser window. yet when i come back again to same page add another record later on it has jumped by 1 up to starting point of record ID 8 even though i should have only 6 record entries in total in the DB. I even tried leaving the form through pressing the cancel button.  No difference Wierd…. is this to do with the Commit / dont commit? Any recommendations for fixing appreciated,  thoughts appreciated. Daryl

An AutoNumber will always create a new next number for a new object, no matter what you do with the created object. It’s just a simple way of creating unique numbers.

If you really need to have sequential numbers without gaps you need to maintain them sourself.
