Quote Auto Numbering

Does anyone know how to change the default starting quote number in an opportunity? We don't want it to read 0000011, we'd like instead to have it default start at 0004139, for instance. This is shown when the PDF is created.

I am not an expert in Quotes, but with an inspection into the Customization pages for Quotes, it doesn't look like it is possible. It is simply an AutoNumber. One thing you could try is create and delete a few thousand Quotes. You could do this with a custom VisualForce page and controller made just for this purpose, or of course you could create and delete them manually. Either way, this should have the effect of increasing the AutoNumber so that it looks like your company has issued lots of Quotes. :)
