Summary06823: reach maximum numbers of surveys - overwrite for the next ?
DescriptionHello, for limesuvey V185 + (build 7689), I feel I have reached the limit of creation questionnaire:

When the number 99,999 is reached, it restarts the numbering. (At least that's the impression I have).

In capturing -1 - shows the number of questionnaire.
In capturing -2 - shows the table structure lime_survey

The sid of type integer.
According to the doc postgresql (I have 8.1.4) -
we see that the integer has a range of -2147483648 to +2147483647.

I wonder if questionnaires active / inactive / expired, are not made by crushing created after the new 99999?

These symptoms are present in the V192 + and V2?
In French Forum, DenisChenu say :
the number on the core of limesurvey (for V185 and 192) was 99 999 max.

he say that the number for limesurvey 2.00 is more bigger.

But how many ?
and if i reached the new max limit, what append ?
Crushing previous survey ?

Steps To Reproducereach the max number of survey
try to create a new one

The survey ID is randomly selected so unless you have more than 99,999 surveys in your system you will not run out of numbers.
