Yes there is an equivalent in SQL-Server 6.5 and later.  In SQL-Server you need to set the IDENTITY property of the field that you want to be an autonumber field.  If you are using Enterprise Manager for SQL Server, you can just set the Identity column in the Table Designer, Advanced Features, Primary Key tab.  You can also set it using a Transact-SQL CREATE TABLE statement.  The field will be of type "INT".
