Access Custom Sequential Number
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   2 months ago

In this tutorial you will learn how to create your own custom order number that you can start at whatever value you want and have Access automatically increment the values so you have nice sequential order numbers that have no gaps. 

Timothy asks, "I’m using an AutoNumber for OrderID in my table, like you taught me, but my accountant wants me to have sequential numbers for reporting purposes. What should I do?"


BONUS CONTENT for YouTube Members

Silver Members and up get access to an EXTENDED CUT of this video which covers additional examples. That video will show how to replace NULL with Order Number values for existing records. We'll talk about problems with multi-user databases and see how to save that new number to the table immediately to avoid conflicts, and we'll learn how to make a Custom Order Number sequence for each Customer, so for example XYZ Company's invoices will be numbered: XYZ-001, XYZ-002, XYZ-003, etc. And of course we'll assign Customer Codes that are unique and alphanumeric.
