create table abc
(col1 numeric identity(1,1))

Note that when you use identity the column should not allow decimal values

idenity(seed,increment)

where seed is the starting value
increment is how much to increment by each time

What type of database is it? Is it an MS-Access database or another one?

Some databases do not support auto-increment fields.

Since it is posted in the sql-server section I am assuming that you are talking about a sql server database.
