Problem with auto number field inserting a record

I have a table with an auto number as the primary key.  The first ID in the table is 5069.

I have a vba function to add a new record to the table, using addnew and update.  The function does not include a value for the ID field.  

When I run the function, the ID of the appended record is 50.  

How do I make the ID the next sequential number in the table?

Thanks in advance.

Is the AutoNumber the 'ID' you are referring to ?
And if so, as you saying it goes from  5069 to  50 ?
If So. what is before 5069 ? Are they sequential ?

The auto number is the ID I'm referring to.
If I look at the table in ID sequence, the first record ID is 50, second record ID 5069, and the rest of the records follow on sequentially from 5069.

Did you delete a bunch of records at some point ?

If you delete last records, then Compact and repair database, it restarts from last value of autonumber+1.
