I am new to databases, but I wanted to set one up to keep track of
the cars I work on at home. The problem I have is that when I go to
create a new table, whether I use the Wizard or Design View to
create the table, I can't get the primary key to automatically
increment. I have the 1st field as CustomerID. I set it as Integer,
and the click on the AutoValue to Yes. I add the other fields, such
as name, address, phone number, etc, save the table. When I go to
add data, it always wants me to input a value for CustomerID. What
am I doing wrong?
Probably nothing: this appears to be a bug. See
When you add data, the AutoValue field should show "<AutoField>"; if
it is blank, then the process of creating the table has failed. The
workaround is simple:
o Close the table.
o Select the table in the Tables panel.
o Go to Edit | Edit... (or right-click | Edit).
o Select the appropriate field.
o In the Field Properties panel at the bottom, change AutoValue from No to Yes.
o Close and save changes.
I trust this helps.
