I have a form that is unbound (not tied to a recordsource) and along with a Customer number, I would like to have it assign Autonumber as the next field - what would be the proper way to do this?  Using Access 97

    Accepted Solution

    So the table has a field that is set to an autonumber correct?

    If so, you don't need an unbound field to represent that autonumber field in the table.
    When all the other fields are added, such as Customer Number, etc. The autonumber will automatically put it's number in.
