Check the DataFlex docs and see if it has a function that returns this
information, or if the ODBC driver has such a function.
Record numbers are dangerously useless in most database operations - they
get re-used and changed when records are deleted or repair/compress
functions are executed. I hope you aren't planning to use this as foreign
key, i.e. for referencing information in this table from another table.
