Jan, thank you so very, very much for your help. It would have certainly taken me many, many days of frustrating testing and research to try and overcome these problems on my own. Your guidance has been absolutely invaluable. I have posted a bug/feature request on the Quality Control Centre, in rega...

Retrieving Last Inserted Record ID

Hi, all! Right now I am trying to develop a database front-end to a simple accounts system. Ultimately, there will be 2 versions of the system: a single user, and a multiple-user version.
