 remove index from field or delete a indexed field

How can I remove the INDEX from a field or delete a indexed field?

When I want to delete my autonumberfield "ID" I get error 3280 "Cannot
delete a field that is part of an index or is needed by the system."

How can I delete this field?

You can first delete the index, here is a sample:

Dim cn As New ADODB.Connection

cn.Open "provider=microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0;data source=c:\temp\db1.mdb"

Dim cx As New ADOX.Catalog

Set cx.ActiveConnection = cn

cx.Tables("table1").Indexes.Delete 0
