How do I reset the "Autonumber" Primary Key to "1" after removing all records from a table?

When I am cleansing a DataBase for use on a new project, is there a way to reset the Autonumber field in tables to 1 without  breaking links and rebuilding the DB?

Close the database and do a compact. This will reset the autonumber of any tables with no records in.
