    How to set up an autonumber that isn't an autonumber

    Hi Gurus,

    I'm not sure if this is possible or not but I'm wondering if there is a way to set up a number field to autonumber on reviews of an application.



    To elaborate I have a review table linked to the primary application table. The pk on the review table will be an actual autonumber to list all the reviews ever to happen in the database. There will be multiple reviews on one application and there will be a review number for each review (1, 2, 3, etc...). Is it possible to set up as a 'number' field that will add the next review # for that particular application, and then start again at 1 for the next application?

    Thanks!
