    That's the purpose of autonumbers. The autonumber is designed for one
    purpose, and one purpose only: to provide a unique key.

    You cannot and should not assume that autonumbers are sequential, or
    free of gaps; in general, you're best off not exposing autonumbers to
    the user at all! Instead, you can use a Long Integer value and assign
    its value in VBA code.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
