Do that by executing a DDL SQL statement, which would look like this:
"ALTER TABLE MyTable ALTER COLUMN <MyAutoNumberToChange>  LONG;"
You may find the following helpful with other SQL/DDL statements that you can use:

Thanks.  Check out that link I posted.  Also at the bottom of that is a link to the third part of the article, advanced JET SQL which is well worth looking through.  
Between the three articles, they show you anything and everything that can be done with JET SQL.
