SELECT IDENT_CURRENT command for access

Is there an identical comman in Access as SELECT IDENT_CURRENT that I can use?  I am trying to execute the following script:
'Get current primary key
sGetID = "SELECT IDENT_CURRENT(Table)"
rs.Open sGetID, conn, 1, 2
session("sGetID") = rs(0)
rs.Close

'End get Primary key

The error is as follows:

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80040e14'

Undefined function 'IDENT_CURRENT' in expression.

There isn't. Are you trying to capture the new record Id from an autoincrement field when you add a new record in Access?

Here is how I do it:

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblYourTable WHERE 0=1"
objRS.Open strSQL,objConnection,3,3
objRS.AddNew()
  objRS("fldField1") = "Some value 1"
  objRS("fldField2") = "Some value 2"
objRS.Update()
intID = objRS("intID")

where objRS("intID") is your autoincrement field.

As far as I know, Access does not support @@Identity or any other similar function.
