    Autonumbering the default database form

    Attached is a workbook for entering sample receipt. Each new entry/row should have the consecutive number in column A.
    I have a button for calling up the default form for a database (e.g. Data>Form>New).
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    Is there any way to get that first field to autopopulate with the next number? Or would I need to create a user form to do something like that? Thanks in advance.

    You cannot amend the built in dataform. I have posted several examples showing how to create a sequential reference number.
    Hope that helps.
