I have the following SQL Statement:

SELECT TOP 1 MORTGEE_NUMBER FROM MORTGEE ORDER BY MORTGEE_NUMBER DESC

This returns the highest "AutoNumber" in my table - MORTGEE.

I would like to add one to this number, via sql if possible, or any other suggestion.  This is an integer.

THanks,

JD

Hello jamesdean666,

SELECT TOP 1 MORTGEE_NUMBER + 1 FROM MORTGEE ORDER BY MORTGEE_NUMBER DESC

Or

Select Max(Mortgee_Number)+1 From Mortgee
