Return Primary Key on INSERT statement

I am inserting a record into a table that automatically generates
unique ids (i.e. Primary Key). Is there anyway to return this id. As I
am using this on ASP.net page and I really need the ID to update the
page with the new details.

I think on mysql there is something called LAST_INSERT_ID which does
this.

You can also run the INSERT/SELECT script directly from your code:

SET NOCOUNT ON
INSERT INTO MyTable (MyData) VALUES(1)
SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY( )

I need to insert a row into a table in SQL Server 2000. The primary key for the row is an identity type, so it auto-numbers for me without needing to put in the value in the insert statement.

We are converting a legacy visual foxpro system to use a SQL back-end. A number of (existing DBF) tables currently have a zero-filled primary key eg. '000255' which is just an auto-incrementing key - but always stored as a char field with leading zeros. For backward compatibility we are considering retaining this primary key and using an identity field to auto-generate the next value, then convert the new identity value into the new...
