I can't seem to import from a text file into a table that has an autonumber. I figured it would be smart enough to add an autonumber for each record as it imported, but I guess not.

Should i change my autonumber fields on my lookup tables to number fields and add a number to each record in my text files, or is there a relatively easy way to import to tables with autonumbers fields?

oh, btw, I am using Access 2000

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.
