Hi Zeb,

You can not set the field in your table to auto increment, it will only accept integers type like 1,2,3,4 etc. The way around this is to do the following -

''Open your recordset.... SELECT * FROM etc...

Dim xCount As Integer, strRec As String

xCount = rsRecordset.Recordcount
xCount = xCount + 1

strRec = xCount & "ELE"

Now, when you add a new record to your database, use strRec as the field id.
