This works the best if you have a autonumber with the database.  The line is listed below

select * from [table] where [autonumber field] in (select max([autonumber field]) from [table])

[table] - The talble of the record you want to look up.
[autonumber field] - The field that contains the autonumber.  The reason I say to use the autonumber is because the last record that you add will be the largest number.
