I have this:

strSQL = "ALTER TABLE Extracted_NDW_WEEKLY_PRODUCT_MOVEMENT ALTER COLUMN [Auto_ID] COUNTER (10,1); "
CurrentDb.Execute (strSQL)

Thanks

If this is a access db, only way I know how to reset autonumber is to empty table then do a compact/repair.

Is this backend msacceess or some other db

ok, your sql will work but unless the table is empty, you run the risk of failing records due to duplicate records

as you cant do this on linked tables, only other way I can think of is if you open the access database via vba then run the sql

eg

    Dim dbData As dao.Database
   
    Set dbData = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).openDatabase("c:\mydb.mdb", False, False, "")
    dbData.Execute "your sql"
   
    dbData.Close

The sql to reset the AutoNumber field is below and you can run this as suggested by rockiroads above in ID:24038808

ALTER TABLE tblTest ALTER myAutonumberField AUTOINCREMENT(1,1)
