I want to add a row of serial number for the existing records in MS access .Whenever I am trying to define a new row with type as "Auto Number" and save the same it automatically gets changed to Text type.Please suggest.Also, the requirement is modified and now the serial number has to be of 8 digits i.e. the first number should be 00000001 and the max length should be of 8 digits as this field is being received by an external system and this system will accept only 8 digits .Is it possible to do in MS access and how can I do the same.
I am allowed to use VB as well,so can anyone please let me know how it can be done through any of these.
