Sales order numbering post migration

Hi Guys
Just had a question about how the sales number would behave after migrating data.
We’ve migrated all of our existing sales data from our Magento 1 system but I wondered how this worked with the new orders on the Magento 2 system.
The Migration tool seems to have kept the original ID numbers for our sales orders (which I’m happy about as it makes them easier to search) but as the new orders seem to reset the counter I wondered how this would work when they “caught up” with the migrated orders.
I realize that this is something that has already been considered but I just wanted to make sure that the new orders will not conflict with/overwrite the original sales orders.
If you could let me know how this works I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks

Hi there,

 but as the new orders seem to reset the counter

Yes, that is right and it refers to the new working rule of M2. 

but I just wanted to make sure that the new orders will not conflict with/overwrite the original sales orders.

Don’t worry, the IDs of new sales orders will not conflict with migrated sales orders.
Regards,
Mall.
