access app connects via odbc to mysql table. Mysql table has an auto increment index field of type BIGINT. Access treats this as a text string and result is all fields show up in access as #Deleted even though the mysql data is fine.

question is what to do to make this field compatible in both ends?

Access does not yet support BIGINT even though it's been around for years.  Your only option is to change the definition in MySQL if you can.

PS - write to MS to complain.  I have.  Not supporting this particular data type is a real problem.

What should I change mysql to INT I assume it has to be a numeric field to auto-increment.
