The autonumber property is not available through an SQL statement like you are attempting.

You'll need to explore the DAO TableDefs, Index, Attributes and specifically dbAutoIncrField keywords in the VBA help file.

Basically the process is: create a new TableDef, Append the fields you wish to this new tabledef, create a new index for the new tabledef, set the new index's attributes to dbAutoIncrField...
