    I suggest you may not want to use Autonumber for that use. Autonumbers are
    designed to provide unique numbers. It in not designed to provide numbers
    in order and for a number of reasons may not do so. As a result using them
    in any application where the user sees the numbers is likely to end up with
    confusion.

    There are other ways of providing the numbers you want depending on the
    particual application.
