I got rejected my B1 Visa last year. Now I renewed my passport and passport number is changed.
During filling DS 160 for reapply, previous visa application records to be mentioned in DS 160. What should I write on application?
Question in DS 160: Have you can ever applied US Visa?

As my passport number is changed, can I write it as "NO"?

Please advise me.

Dear Experts, need your expertise......

I attempted my second attempt for B1 Visa on 5/7/19 after rejection of first application on 2/5/19.....
In the interview, last question was ...
VO: Have you ever applied US Visa?
Me: Yes, and denied last time.

After typing........she (VO) said....

As you have reapplied application immediately after first rejection. And no any circumstances is changed since first application. We could not approve visa.

Me: Any particular duration mam, I can reapply?
VO: Listen, you should reapply application once circumstances is changed to the first application.
She advised also not to apply again and again with short span. She advised reaplly once circumstances is changed to the first one.

Please advise me next process.
When I can reapply again? How long should I wait?
How long all previous rejection records thay maintain?
Because one of my friends told me after six months all previous records are deleted from system. Is it true?
