This post is pretty much just a note for myself, but it might help someone too. When appending rows from an Access Database table to a SQL Server table of the same structure, sometimes SQL will not retain the ID's for AutoNumber fields. This can be a big problem for our ParaPlan application. In Access you can compact and repair to reset your autonumber fields back to 0 or 1 obviously. However, I never really figured out how to do that in SQL 05 until now. To clear a table's records and reset the autonumber in SQL 05, just use the following syntax in a query on SQL db: "truncate table dbo.drivers"
