    Need help with an auto number

    I am new at Access and have set up an invoice database. I have the invoice # setup as a auto number but I need the Ivoice number to start at at Invoice number 700000.

    How can I get the auto number to start at 700000?

    Based on a tip from:

    1. Create your table, but only do the ID field, defined as AutoNumber. Do not enter any data before moving on to Step 2!
    2. Execute this query:

    INSERT INTO YourTableName (AutoNumFieldName)
    SELECT [EnterStartingNumber] AS Expr1
