(Remark: The question is for experienced experts please do not send googling answers)
I have an mdb table which I check last record by:
"SELECT LAST(user_number) from sw1_users"  
then I Insert a new record  to the table succefully
and check last record again by:
"SELECT LAST(user_number) from sw1_users"
It work fine for a period of time but now I get the same LAST value always.
I tried to delete some last records but it doesent help, it seems that the table is not counting new records.
How can I solve this or check for the source of the problem?

this seems to be ms access, and not ms sql server, right?
you might want to use MAX() instead of LAST()

I am not sure why Access has stopped working abruptly. But without relying on this access function you can write some SQL to get the same out put

SELECT TOP 1 user_number from sw1_users ORDER BY user_number DESC

explanation: LAST will return the "last record returned", but the rows might not be returned in the order of that field.
so, only MAX() will be the correct approach.

Please request the thread be moved from MS SQL Server to the more appropriate MS Access zone.
