I'm sure my problem is not unique, but I am having a hard time thinking of a way to solve it so here it is:
I have a VB form with some fields on it, which are used to create a new entry in one of my SQL tables. The design kinda goes like this: all fields are mandatory and in addition to that the primary field (fid) in the table is the identity field which self increments.
So the question is: how do I retrieve the id value from the fid field for my newly created entry? To make things harder, it is possible that two entries can have ALL fields identical.

You need to capture the value of SCOPE_IDENTITY() directly after the insert is performed.

DECLARE @i int
