I run the below to add a record to my main table.  

Private Sub CmdATech_Click()

Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
   
    On Error GoTo err_label
   
    Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
    rst.Open "techs", CurrentProject.Connection, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
    rst.AddNew
    rst!LName = Me.LName
    rst!FName = Me.FName
    rst!Email_Address = Me.Email_Address
    rst!FolderName = Me.FolderName
    rst.Update
    rst.Close
    Set rst = Nothing
   
    MsgBox "New record created sucessfully", vbInformation, "Record created"
   
    Me.LName = Null
    Me.FName = Null
    Me.Email_Address = Null
    Me.FolderName = Null
   
    Exit Sub

err_label:
    MsgBox "Error creating new record" & vbNewLine & Err.Description, vbCritical, "Error creating new record"


End Sub

' this sub requery's the combobox to add the new tech to the list of techs
' this also works fine

Private Sub cmdCForm_LostFocus()
   
    Forms![techs]![cmbID] = Null
    Forms!techs!txtHLink.Text = ""
    Forms![techs]![cmbID].Requery
 
 
End Sub

This works and once the record has been added the primary key is assigned.

when I try to select the new "ID" (which is the primary key) the query returns nothing.  in my frustration I deleted the code I had written.  
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get the primary key for the newly added record?

I figure I need to query the original table (the one with the primary key)

between the lines rst.Update and rst.Close, you may be able to fetch the key value using
Debug.Print rst!ID
