displaying an auto-incremented identity column

P: 93
Most databases have multiple users. For these databases it is a good idea to auto-increment the identity column.

I understand that the identity column is not incremented until the newly-created record is inserted.

I guess this means the identity column is incremented when you actually reconnect to the database and insert the new record there, rather than just add the record to the locally-resident DataSet, correct?

And I guess this also means that for auto-incremented identity columns it is not possible to accurately display the newly-incremented identity column in the data entry WinForm used to create the new record and add it to the database, right?
