Hi

I am using the DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet function to import data into access. Is there a way to create a new field in the imported table called ID that is an autonumber and a primary key within the vba?

Thanks

Hi Ellis_F,

The easiest way is to create the table in Access (with an autonumber) & import into that table. (If necessary deleting previous data.


Good Luck!
