Thanks.!!
It's works but the column "aa" has a ZERO value.
How I can do to insert in that column (aa) an autoincrement value??

Thanks

There isn't any way to specify an autoincrement field inan Access Make-table query.
You would have to run another quer/ execute another SQL string afterwards to Alter the table and column to set the autoincrement property.

ALTER TABLE table_name ALTER COLUMN column_name Counter

Alternativley use a pre-built table which includes an autonumber field, and use delete and append queries instead.
