The following example sets the AutoIncrement, AutoIncrementSeed, and AutoIncrementStep properties.

private void AddAutoIncrementColumn()
    DataColumn column = new DataColumn();
    column.DataType = System.Type.GetType("System.Int32");
    column.AutoIncrement = true;
    column.AutoIncrementSeed = 1000;
    column.AutoIncrementStep = 10;

    // Add the column to a new DataTable.
    DataTable table = new DataTable("table");
Private Sub AddAutoIncrementColumn()
    Dim column As New DataColumn()
    column.DataType = System.Type.GetType("System.Int32")
    With column
        .AutoIncrement = True
        .AutoIncrementSeed = 1000
        .AutoIncrementStep = 10
    End With

    ' Add the column to a new DataTable.
    Dim table As DataTable
