Primary key in MS Access 2013

Gordon_Atherley
on
MS Access auto-numbers each record and by default uses the record number as the primary key.

If a record is deleted does (a) the auto-numbering take over to fill in the gap in the numbering or (b) does it leave the gap unfilled?

I need a primary key system that supports option (b).

Help please.
