    Manual Autonumber - Access

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to ask you how can I (if possible) to create a form based on a table that one field is filled with the number that is higher than previous record in a table.

    Basically I would like to create something like Autonumber but if I set Autonumber then if I delete a raw Autonumber will show me next number and I want to add a number that will show me + 1 value of existing number of records.

    I mean:
    If I have records from 1 to 120 and I delete the record number 120 I want that next record had number of 120 and not 121 like it would be with Autonumber type.

    thank you very much for your help in advance.

    are you trying to save on numbers? There a lots of them.
    Why not just use autonum and get 121? The computer nor data doesn't care.

    Otherwise you must write code to constantly look for a gap.
    but you can just get the dMAX(field)
    I =dMAX(field)
    I = I + 1 'the NEW key

    so why waste the time/energy when autonum does it all for free.
