This is from Lloyd's Help file. I didn't check if it works.

Q:   How to I create a Paradox table with an Auto Increment type field programatically?  I'm using TTable.CreateTable, but TFieldType doesn't include this type.

A:   Use a TQuery and SQL CREATE TABLE statement.  For example:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with Query1 do
  begin
    DatabaseName := 'DBDemos';
    with SQL do
    begin
      Clear;
      Add('CREATE TABLE "PDoxTbl.db" (ID AUTOINC,');
      Add('Name CHAR(255),');
      Add('PRIMARY KEY(ID))');
      ExecSQL;
      Clear;
      Add('CREATE INDEX ByName ON "PDoxTbl.db" (Name)');
      ExecSQL;
    end;

  end;
end;

The problem solved in an other way, but your example works, so
I accept it. I think you agree with grade B.
