Try this:  "select LAST_INSERT_ID();"
It should return a recordset with a single row and single column containing the value last inserted into an AUTO_INCREMENT field for the current connection.

Thanks.  Have you seen the MySQL docs?  They are in HTML in the "docs" folder under the main MySQL folder.
