now i do in that way:
Code:
DataGridView1.DataSource = lpBases.dataSet.Tables[0];
            for (int i=0;i<lpBases.dataSet.Tables[0].Rows.Count;i++)
                DataGridView1[0,i].Value = i+1;


but it is not good solution...

Typically, databases that use autoincrementing columns keep track of the autoincrement counter regardless of how many rows or which IDs are still in the table. If you want to always have a sequential ID, you could use a non identity int column and manually generate the ID. However, if you delete a row, you still get a broken sequence. Also, this technique can be problematic depending on how you write your queries and how much activity there is against that table.

What scope error would you expect to get?

Ok, I see. (That's not a scope error per se, it's a data type limitation).

Sure, if you have a SQL table with an integer field that's used as the primary key (starting at 0 going up) then you are limited to 2,147,483,648 records. If you reach that limit then you'll probably be having other problems more important to address.
