How do you setup multiple primary keys for a table?

I can only get it to set ONE primary key at a time.  If I try to set some other column to be a primary key it marks that column as the primary key and undoes the other one.

for example,

AgentFormOverrideID is the primary key

And I want to also set:

AgentFormOverrideSID as a part of the primary key

Designate the first PK column thru the GUI, as you've done.

Then right-click on the column; select "Indexes/Keys"; click on the "..." after the "Columns"; in the (empty) second line, add the key column you need; click "OK".

Then exit design, doing a "Save" when asked :-) .
