    I've been reading all the posts regarding autonumber and perhaps I'm just
    missing it, but I'm looking to have my autonumber field be four digits. Then
    I will have the numbers generated randomly. The numbers themselves aren't
    important, but one of my major fields is a three digit number and it can get
    confusing when the autonumber is the same number of digits.

    Is it possible to set the number of digits?

    nope, but the autonumber shouldn't be visible to the user anyhow
    I usually put it in the page header of the form & serts it's visible
    property to false

    Okay, that's fine. You're right that I don't show the autonumber to my
    users, so it's not a big deal. Mostly just confuses me when I'm entering
    data, but I'll fix that up with some formatting options.

    Appreciate your help.
