Resetting an AutoNumber Field
"When you delete the last record or records in a table or in a form that has an AutoNumber field, and then you compact the database, the AutoNumber field does not start at the next higher number when you add new records."
By using an append query, you can change the starting value of an AutoNumber field in a table to a number other than 1.
Microsoft Access always numbers AutoNumber fields beginning with the number 1. If the table has data in it already, the starting value of the autonumber will be higher than the highest value already in the table. You cannot manually edit an AutoNumber field or change its starting value.
I'm using Access 2003/XP/2000/97 and VB6 as the front-end. I need to get the next value in the AutoNumber field before inserting the next record using SQL. How can I find out what the next value will be in an AutoNumber field?
I have the field called subject_id which is autonumber in the form of 10001,10002,.. And I want the field with the same format to appear in another table. But appending it leads to different numbering, i.e. the filed becomes 1, 2, .. instead of 10001, 10002 as I've formatted it in its original table. How could I append/copy such a field?
I have a make table query that I would like to add an autonumber field to. I want to automate this, so I do not want to go into the table manually after creating it.
I know you can add fields to a query that are placeholders for eventual updates, for example putting: NBR:0 in a query grid will create a field of the numerical (long integer I think) datatype.
Is there anyway to do this for the autonumber field. Obviously in this case it wouldn't be a placeholder waiting to receive data, I would like it to add data to the field: auto enumerate the records which are transferred to the new table.
