The ID field is increment by one every time that you add a field to a new table in Datasheet view in Access 2007 or in Access 2010

SYMPTOMS
You create a new table in Datasheet view in Microsoft Office Access 2007 or in Microsoft Access 2007. Every time that you press ENTER to add a new field to the table, the ID field value is incremented by one. For example, if you add five fields to the first row of data before you save the table, the ID field value is incremented to 5.
WORKAROUND
To work around this problem, perform one of the following actions:
  • Add a second row of data before you add a new field to the table.
  • Save the table before you add a new field to the table.
