Why do I get duplicate Autonumbers after upgrading to Access 2000 by ImpMan
Posted: 8 Jul 02

Have you just upgraded from Access 97 to Access 2000?
Have your autonumbers reset in your tables?
The problem is that Access 2000 requires a patch in-order for it to compact a database without destroying it! The database gets compacted automatically when you convert the database from 97 to 2000 versions.

The Solution, get the patch from Microsoft.;EN-US;q257408

The other problem is that the database you have compacted is corrupt and isn't fixed with the patch. I haven't come up with a solution for this. I went back to an old version and then compacted with the patch in place.
