ASP.NET/ ADO.NET Access 97 Autonumber

Hi,

I have an access 97 database that I am writing data to through .NET.  The table I'm inserting data into has an autonumber column for the primary key.  I need to have that primary key return to the .NET layer so I can do other things with it.  I have done my insert through a straight SQL call, and through a DataAdapter -- they both work fine.  However, I cannot get the Primary Key returned.  I found out that you cannot do a "Select @@IDENTITY" because it is Access 97.  How can I get the primary key for an newly inserted row effectively?

Thanks

you can do "select YourAutonumber from Table"

where YourAutonumber is the name of the Autonumber field

use the RowUpdated event from the OleDbDataAdapter:
(the code below is from MSDN)
...........................
<code to set up and adding data to dataset>
' Include an event to fill in the Autonumber value.

AddHandler catDA.RowUpdated, New OleDbRowUpdatedEventHandler(AddressOf OnRowUpdated)

catDA.Update(catDS, "Categories")
.........................

the event handler:
Private Shared Sub OnRowUpdated(sender As Object, args As OleDbRowUpdatedEventArgs)
    ' Include a variable and a command to retrieve the identity value from the Access database.
    Dim newID As Integer = 0
    Dim idCMD As OleDbCommand = New OleDbCommand("SELECT @@IDENTITY", nwindConn)

    If args.StatementType = StatementType.Insert
      ' Retrieve the identity value and store it in the CategoryID column.
      newID = CInt(idCMD.ExecuteScalar())
      args.Row("CategoryID") = newID
    End If
End Sub

hope this help
