    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.

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!
