Each time new card info is added the number is incremented. You
still have two cards but the new numbers became 3 and 4 if you
added them without resetting the tables first.

If you are re-entering card info from scratch rather than just
adding another card, you should answer "yes" to the two questions.
This will clear out and reset your card, source and input data
but will not affect the info about the shows you already have
