Counter Fields - value assigned on Addnew not Update? 
Author Message
 Counter Fields - value assigned on Addnew not Update?

VB4 Pro/32bit/Win95.

Can someone confirm the following:
When using a counter field the value is calculated
(and lost forever)
when the Addnew method is invoked -NOT- when
the Update method is invoked (contrary to what is
stated in the help files ).

For example, say you have 3 records in a table
and you do the following:

                Rollback        }include these to force
                exit sub        }exit/simulate error

Then, remove the 2 lines (Rollback & exit sub) and repeat.
The next record has a value in the counter field of 5,
not 4 as I would expect!!

Any comments?
