    Hi All,

    I am relatively new at programming access but am familiar with most things. I am having a problem with a field I need. I have to have a field that contains the year (4 digits) and an auto number (000) that needs to be "zero" ed out at the beginning of the new year i.e. (2009-015 to 1010-001). Can this be done and How. I am using Access 2003 not 2010.

    You will need to create your own Function that you call from the BeforeUpdate event of your form. Your Function will probably use the DMax() function.
