i have an sqlite table with primarykey,autoincrement Id field.
Once i use the delete command to remove all rows and after this when i try to insert the Id field is not starting from 0, instead its starting from previous max+1 value.
In mysql if we use empty table command and insert again , then we get the Id starting from 1 again.
How can i achieve the same in sqllite.
My real aim is once the table contains 1000 records i want to remove all records and start from id=1 again

You can drop and recreate the table, or
delete from sqlite_sequence where name='%TABLE NAME%';

Use this (where tablename is your table):

DELETE FROM tablename;    
DELETE FROM sqlite_sequence WHERE name = 'tablename';
