Autofill an identitly field using an activex script in DTS

I have a vbscript that copies and transforms data from an access table to and existing MSSQL table. The destination table has an identity column, and I need to autopopulate it as the data is loaded. I'm thinking the line of code would look something like:

DTSDestination("id") = ?

where ? is a command to autoincrement the id by 1. Hopefully this is just a syntax question. Thanks.

Use the DTS Package Properties dialog to create a global variable. This global variable can then be accessed in code.


For example:


Function Main()
   DTSDestination("FieldName") = DTSGlobalVariables("NewID").value
   DTSGlobalVariables("NewID").value = DTSGlobalVariables("NewID").value + 1
   Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
End Function

PS a SQl Server IDENTITY column automatically fills in this incremental value
