Default Last record inserted ID

In an access database I have a table with the ID set for autoincrement. I am inserting a record using DoCmd.RunSQL
Is there an easy way to find out the ID number of the record after I insert it? I need to referance the record right after I create it.

in MS SQL I use @@IDENTITY is there something similar.

No there isn't.

To do this, you will need to add information yourself, and look up the record using that info.

For instance, you could add an "INSERT_DATE_TIME" column, and fill it in with NOW() as you add the record.

Then of course you could retrieve the most recent record with something like:
FROM  <MyTable>
                             FROM   <MyTable>
