How To

Reseed an autonumber field by redapples
Posted: 25 Apr 05

There seem to be quite a lot of posts asking how to this and I was looking to do this myself but did not find the answer here.

A simple SQL statement will do this in Jet4.0 SQL

CODE

Dim cnn as ADODB.Connection
Dim StrSQl as string

StrSQL = "ALTER TABLE tblProblems ALTER COLUMN [Key] COUNTER(1,1)"
    cnn.Execute strSQL

I use this for some tables that store temporary data for producing some reports and as such my data is removed prior to running this SQL.  I would not suggest using this on a table where you preserve the data, especially when the counter field is used as a KEY field as I have done.
