Start AutoNumber From 'x' and not 0 - Access SQL - 07/06/2012

Short n sweet...

Use an "INSERT INTO..." statement that also sets the autoincrement/autonumber field, for example

INSERT INTO mytable (myfield1, myfield2, myfield3, myautonumber) VALUES ('This', 'is', 'Easy', 5000)

This will insert into the table a new record with the autoincrement/autonumber at a certain vaule, in this case 5,000.  Access will continue to count from this number upwards.  If you don't want the first record, delete it...

I used MS Access 2003 to do this with my web based database.  I created a query and ran it.  I have no reason to doubt that it will work if I'd done a straight SQL query from ASP.Net, it was just easier to use Access.
