    Autonumber register

    Hi everybody! As Iím new at this forum I apologize in case my question was already answered before.


    Iím designing an invoice manage database and I need to get the first invoice number from a table in which I register the authorized block of invoices (by the Treasury and just for defined period of time). Then, for new created invoices, correlative numbers Ö could someone help me on this? Thanks in advance!

    You mention Autonumber which is a special "thing" in MS Access.
    I suggest you review this link Autonumbers -What they are not for reference.

    Many thanks for your reply...

    Now I realize I shouldn't use "autonumbers" since my doubt is actually related to the fact that I need to get the first invoice number from a table which contains just the first and the last numbers of an approved block of invoices. Then, for following registers, I need a series of correlative numbers.

    Thanks again! KRa
