    I am trying to change the auto ID numbers in the data base, thats Customer
    ID and Product ID to a manual system. I don't want to use sequential numbers.
    Does anyone know if this is possible and how we remove the auto formatting
    for these areas?

    I am lost.

    If you want to permanently change the AutoNumber field into one where you
    can type a number:

    1. Open the table in design view.

    2. Change the Data Type column beside this field from:
    AutoNumber
    to
    Number.

    3. Remove the 0 default value in the lower pane of table design.

    4. Save the table.
