I am reading employee data from a table but eveytime I try to read in the EmployeeID field, which is an autonumber field, it returns a null value. I have setup an update query in access to update a field I call IDNumber with the EmployeeID field value, and referenceing the IDNumber field works fine. But I dont want to have to run this query everytime a new employee is added. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.<BR><BR>
