    Generated number

    faranya2

      This may have been asked and answered before, but can anyone tell me if it is possible to have a computer-generated consecutive number automatically added to a form when it is either opened up or submitted?  I am creating an accession record form for use by several staff members on which each new accession (gift or purchase) is assigned a unique identifing number.  The form records all pertinent information and in our old system (i.e., typed form), the forms were maintained by the office secretary.  She printed out X number of forms at the beginning of the year and manually assigned each form a different acquisition number.  We want to make this procedure as automated as possible, but this has me stumped.

       

      I'd appreciate any help on this.

       

      Thanks!
