ADOX Autoincrement property gives runtime error with VB6

Experts, your help please

I'm attempting to use ADOX in VB6 to add an autoincrement field to a Table in an Access database and make it the primary key

The following snippet gvies a runtime error when it attempts to set the Autoincrement property to true

                       Set oTable = oTables.Item("MyTable")
                       With oTable
                            .Columns.Append "PriKey", adInteger
                            .Columns("PriKey").Properties("Autoincrement") = True
                            .Keys.Append "MyTable", adKeyPrimary, .Columns("PriKey")
                       End With

I've tried various alternatives for this code but always the error is always at the same point.

Solutions or workarounds, please

Now I see the technique. Append an index which becomes the primary key.
