    Can I make Access Auto Increment a 4 digit number at the next blank form. ie

    When I start the secession I will type in the Visual Id #, say it is "7643".
    Then when the record is saved and a new blank one opened, I would like the
    form to open with a 7644 number already in the "VID" field.

    Try:

    If Me.NewRecord Then

    Me!NameOfField = Nz(DMax("YOURFIELDNAME","TABLENAME"), 0) + 1

    End If

    Replace the 0 if you want a different starting number


    The following can be used to format the field with letters preceding the
    number like ABC

    =Format(NumField, "\A\B\C\-0000")

    Where do I put that code. In the Lookup section of the Table or in the form?

    The link I sent contains this information. It goes into the field's default
    value, which can be set in the text box bound to the field.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
