How to reset Auto Number in a Table?

Can someone let me know; "How to reset the Auto Number in an access table"?

I have a table that I would like to reset the Auto numbers in the key field.

Your collaboration is appreciated.


RE: How to reset Auto Number in a Table?

Due to the nature of the Autonumber, it shouldn't be exposed to users (or was it vice versa?), so it shouldn't matter what the next Autonumber is.

If you must, then Allen Browne has a couple of pages with about this, and some of the quirks/bugs concerning Autonumber in Jet http://allenbrowne.com/ser-26.html, http://allenbrowne.com/ser-40.html.

By the way, sine this is is an Access/Jet question, it would probably be better suited in one of the Access fora.
