You would use identity(n,1) on the column that was autonum.

When you define the SQL Server target table the column corresponding to the autonum column would be defined using identity:

create table a (ii int identity(1,1))

When you are transferring the data from access to SQL Server you need to use:

SET IDENTITY_INSERT a ON

If you are using DTS in Enterprise Manager, there is a checkbox corresponding to this SET statement.
