Set Next Serial Value not working how help menu describes...

So right now I have an ID field that is an auto-entry serial value, increasing increments by 1. The trouble is that when I delete, let's say, ID 7 from the records, it does not reset the field. The new record I make will be ID 8 instead of a new ID 7. So after looking a lot of stuff up, I found the Set Next Serial Value script with some answers. The help menu told me I could set the script to me something like: Set Next Serial Value [Mice::ID; Max (Mouse::ID) +1]. That way the auto-entry serial value would automatically reset to the previously highest ID value +1. I entered everything they said to the line, but still no results. I put in a record, and it is still just continuing by 1 no matter what I delete! Any help??
