Accessing MS Access through VB.NET

I'm currently developing a VB.net win forms application.  This application uses MS Access 2000 for the database.  When inserting into a table, the primary key is an autonumber. Then I need to insert this autonumber into this other table.  This autonumber is a foriegn key in this other table.  Is there an easy way to get what the value of the autonumber of the table at the time of insert, or do I need to write a query to retrieve this value.

Visual Basic.NET

use @@identity

also you could use

SELECT Max(RecordID) as LastAutoID FROM Table1

to get the last ID inserted. But if you are using Access 200 or higher, I recomment using @@IDENTITY
