Text / Auto-Incrementing

The Auto-Incrementing field automatically generates a unique number in a text form. You can define the Start From value. When you create the first record the value of this field will be equal to "the start from". You can define the prefix and suffix that will be added to the number.

The Auto-Incrementing data entry control has the following Popup Menu functions: Reset Counter, Set Value.

Choose a large number like 1000000 as a starting value. For one million records you will have the same length unique numbers generated by the program, you can use them as barcode numbers. You can print barcode or tag labels in Organizer Advantage.
