Field Id can't be modified

I have a database with Id (auto_increment), Songtitle, Genre and Songtext.

The app that I created uses 2 ADOQueries, 1 master and the other just to copy temporary records to it from the master.

When I try this, but clicking a button, I get the message Field 'Id' can't be modified.

I use the field Id for numbers, because of its auto_increment (can't be used twice in the same table, otherwise I would use number).

Is there a solution for this?

Nope, you shouldn't modify autoincrement field.
As the name says it increments by itself.
If you still want to modify it, try to change it in table 2 in type number or double...

It is always easier when you try to find a solution for someone's problem,
it is much different when you try to do the same for yourself. :)
