Autoincrement fields not recognised as Autonumbers

Is there any way to get Autoincrement primary keys to be recognised by Access as autonumber fields (So that the fields behave like access - e.g. records can be copied and pasted with the primary key ignored)


testID, testText, tmStamp
1,anything, xx-xx-xx xxxx

in access selecting the row and copying and pasting to a new row would produce

2, anything, xx-xx-xx xxxx

but mysql produces an error "ODBC Call Failed. Duplicate entry '1' for key 1 (#1062)" because it is trying to enter the same primary key.

I am using:
Access 2002 (with access 2000 format DBs)
MySQL 4.1.15
ODBC 3.5.11-2 (also tried 3.5.12)
MySQL Administrator 1.1.13

I have created my tables in MySQL Administrator as follows:

Table yetAnotherTest
testID, Integer NOT NULL, AUTO INC, default=NULL
testText, Varchar(45), default=NULL

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
