    IN the database that I'm creating, each product and category has its own
    unique ID number instead of an autonumber for the primary key. They are in
    the form of AA111. Is there anyway that I can set up the field properties so
    when entering data the next number in the sequence is automatically entered,
    ie, I'm enter data and its number is AA001. When I hit enter or tab to move
    to the next row, it automatically fills in AA002. Any information would be
    helpful.
    Thanks

    Create a query to find the Max of that field. In your data entry form have a
    hidden text field of the query. Then set default of your field to the hidden
    field plus one.

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!
