I have a SQL 2000 database with an autonumber as the key field (intNewIntkey), I restored the database to a test system and ran this code: -
    Do Until rst.BOF Or rst.EOF = True
        With rsItem
            .AddNew
            ![ContractNumber] = rst!ContractNumber
            ![Description] = rst!Description
            .update
            .Bookmark = .LastModified
            intNewIntkey = ![InternalKeyNumber]
        End With

I ran this on the test and imported 300 items no problem, on the live it fails as the InternalKeyNumber is null (error 3022), can anyone help?

Double check the column Identity Specification property for InternalKeyNumber in your SQL back end.

Is Identity should be set to YES.

Hi mbizup,
Identity is set to yes. I did a restore anyway as I suspected corruption. Users only lost 3/4 hours work.

Assuming your identity is incrementing, do this from the SQL prompt:

SELECT MAX([InternalKeyNumber]) FROM yourtable

DBCC CHECKIDENT ('yourtable', RESEED, #######)


For ###### substitute the number returned from the first select.

Hi dqmg,
The internal key number links to other tables, will this break the link?

It doesn't update existing rows... just affects rows that are subsequently added.  If the rows being inserted are linked to other tables, then you have a serious matter.
