Is the Primary Key an Auto-Increment (Long Integer) column?

If so, & assuming the INSERT was performed programmatically (rather than through the MS-Access application's Graphical User Interface) then executing (within the same Connection Object as the INSERT) the SQL Statement "SELECT @@Identity" & retrieving the value of the resultant recordset value will provide the last key used.

you can also do this:
once you update the record:
rs.bookmark=rs.LastModified
myVariable = rs!AutonumberFieldname

Open in new window

WHERE rs = recordset variable
AutonumberFieldname is the fieldname of the AutoNumber field
