Retrieve Field value of newly inserted record

I'm running a VBScript application which inserts a record into a table.
Scheme:
UserID (Identity field that auto increments for each insert)
Name
Email

I'd like to get the UserID of the newly inserted field.

How best can I achieve that?

Thanks in advance.

Look into Scope_identity function.

Assuming there is an identity column in table_name (in your case UserID), the below code will capture it as @id

Declare @id int

INSERT INTO table_name (goo, foo, boo) 
VALUES ('yabba', 'dabba', 'doo') 

SELECT @id = @@IDENTITY -- or SCOPE_IDENTITY()
