First of all, why are you using MSAccess for a banking app!?
If you are using autonumber for your account number then why don't you use a SQL query:
"select max(account) from banking_table"
or add a timestamp field and use something like
"select account from banking_table where timestamp_field = (select max(timestamp_field) from banking_table"
not sure I totally understand your problem
