How do I get the MAX primary key from my table and then add one to it for my INSERT statement.
I am using VB if needed.

In the code snippet that VALUE("1001"......  is where i am currently hard coding the next ID number.  I want to make it dynamic so that it changes to the next possible number.  I might have mutiple users trying to write at the same time.
<asp:SqlDataSource runat="server" id="SqlInsert" InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [IncidentTmp] ([ID], [PtAcct], [PtName], [PtStat], [PtLoc], [Event], [Facility], [EventLoc], [EventDept]) VALUES ('1001',@PtAcct, @PtName, @PtStat, @PtLoc, @drpdwnEvent, @drpdwnFacility, @drpdwnLocation, @drpdwnDept)"  ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:QIMConnectionString %>" SelectCommand="SELECT [ID], [PtAcct], [PtName], [PtDob], [PtDos], [PtStat], [PtLoc] FROM [IncidentTmp]">
		<InsertParameters>
			<asp:parameter Name="PtAcct" Type="String" />
			<asp:parameter Name="PtName" Type="String" />
			<asp:parameter Name="PtStat" Type="String" />
			<asp:parameter Name="PtLoc" Type="String" />
			<asp:parameter Name="drpdwnEvent" Type="String"/>
			<asp:parameter Name="drpdwnFacility" Type="String"/>
			<asp:parameter Name="drpdwnLocation" Type="String"/>
			<asp:parameter Name="drpdwnDept" Type="String"/>
		</InsertParameters>
	</asp:SqlDataSource>

Not sure if this is what was being suggested above, but I would leave out ID from the INSERT statement and let the database PK autonumber take care of it.  If your table structure doesn't currently autonumber, and you can change I would do so.

If you cannot, then I would suggest you use a stored procedure to do inserts and you can use transaction with lock as you must:

DECLARE @nextID INT
SELECT @nextID = ISNULL(MAX(ID), 0) + 1 FROM IncidentTmp

Then use the @nextID with other values to complete insert.

Otherwise, you will have to do application locking within your ASP.NET code to ensure that you don't try to insert same ID from multiple calls.
INSERT INTO [IncidentTmp] ([PtAcct], [PtName], [PtStat], [PtLoc], [Event], [Facility], [EventLoc], [EventDept]) VALUES (@PtAcct, @PtName, @PtStat, @PtLoc, @drpdwnEvent, @drpdwnFacility, @drpdwnLocation, @drpdwnDept)

Sorry should have made myself clearer ...

I am suggesting adding an auto incrementing field to the table and using that. In the example I gave above i called in RecOrder ... sorry should have called it ID to save confusion.

sorry for the confusion
