ADO and Autoinc

I am using MQ SQL and Access tables. In MS-SQL, I use the identity clause with a LongInt to allow for autoincrementing. When I use Access, I use the AutoInc datatype.

I would like to use either Access or MS-SQL tables from within my program. However, the datatypes are stored differently within the form. Depending on the database used, one is stored AutoInc and the other is LongInt.

Is there anyway to rectify this problem? (i.e. can I make Delphi think they are both LongInt without losing the AutoInc capability?)

you can treat both of those ase LongInt in your Delphi code
AutoInc field is actually defined as:

TAutoIncField = class(TIntegerField)
