Hi guys,

I wanted to know if it's possible to run an Insert statement on a table, and then determine what the UID (also the primary key) of that entry is?

Cheers guys!

If it's an autonumber, Try this:

LastID = DMax("UID","YourTable")

How multi user is your database gonna be

if u use a recordset to add (one I prefer to use if u have several fields to add) then once u do AddNew, u get the UID number (if its a autonumber)

There will be one whole user of this amazingly big database (excuse the sarcasm :P )

So I can presume Dmax() will be safe?

Yes.  If you wanted to expand, you'd need to do something else.

For a multiuser database, Rocki's VBA suggestion would work, or this variation on the DMax, assuming you're tracking who creates the record:
Dmax("UID","TableName","CreatedBy = '" & currentUser & "'")
