    Setting Reference Number for records

    So far I have created a table and a form that is used by 6 users. I would like to setup a reference number for each record for each user on each date.

    For example:
    User A has 3 records today, then I will have A1, A2, A3 on 12July.

    I have tried to use 1 + DCount("[Reference No]", "Database", "[IA] = i_IA and [Date] = i_Date ")

    However, when I add a new record, the reference number remains the same (e.g. it does not keep updating)

    How can I have the reference number keep updated?

    Many thanks

    Please explain what you mean by reference number and what its purpose would be.

    Are you thinking of a Primary Key (PK) which uniquely identifies each record in a table?
    You may wish to research Autonumber in MSAccess.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
