Access frontend with a SQL Server backend
Posted on 2003-11-20
I have an MS Access frontend with a SQL Server backend. On several of my forms, I have a textbox bound to the primary key of the table. When the backend was solely in MS Access, the primary key would show up as soon as you start making the record. But this is not the case now that the backend is in SQL. The primary key value doesn't show up until you move off the record and comer back to it.
My problem is that I make use of the primary key value before the user gets off the record, so since it is NULL now - my code is crashing. Is there a solution to this.
