Problem with Make Table Query - Resultant Table not allowed to have more than one AutoNumber field.


N

Neil Robbins

I'm trying to write a MakeTable query that will bring together data from a
number of tables and export it as a single table to another database.
Unfortunately when I run this query I get the following error "Resultant
Table not allowed to have more than one AutoNumber field."

Does anyone know a way of changing the Data Type of an autonumber field to a
compatible data type within a make table query.

Any help is always appreciated.

You can export this second Autonumber as a Long. Try putting the following
in the first row of one of the columns in your query:

OldAutoNum: CLng([SecondAutoNum])

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks for the response, I have tried this but am getting an error of
"Extra ) in query expression 'TableName.[CLng([SecondAutoNum])]'

Have I done somthing wrong in implementing what you suggested?

Is there a way of writing this directly in SQL using the SQL view?

Thanks again,

Neil R.

Neil,

Try ...

CLng([TableName].[SecondAutoNum])

or, in SQL

CLng([TableName].[SecondAutoNum]) as OldAutoNum

You were inserting the function between the table name and the field name,
which must be treated as a whole.
