A sequence is created independently of the tables by using the CREATE SEQUENCE statement. Options enable you to control the increment, maximum and minimum values, starting point, automatic restarting capability, and caching to improve performance. For information about the options, see CREATE SEQUENCE.
Once you’ve gotten through all that (and, yes, I know, that was a lot of work) you can look forward to being able to simply type four letters and have Word automagically offer to do the rest of the typing for you:
As you can see, the sequence name can be most anything (e.g. mySeq, A, B, or Bob’s_your_uncle). If you start a sequence with a new sequence name the numbering restarts with 1. Look at Mary’s first chore in the right hand column. Here you see the reset switch \r1 was used. This switch directs Word to restart the sequence named “A” with “1” at this point.
Now there is an error message Compile error: Method or data member not found. With a yellow arrow, and the Private Sub Command4_Click() is highlighted in yellow. and the .txtPONum = is highlighted in blue.
Now, what’s the deal with the UniqueKeyVariant parameter for the RowNumber() function? We are not even using it all! True, but if we didn’t, Access will call RowNumber() only once for an entire query and thus we get “1” for the entire dataset. That is a good way to save on CPU processing – why call Now() for each row? In this case, we want to go against this CPU-saving measure and ensure that the RowNumber() is in fact called once per row to generate a new number for that row. Thus, we pass in a parameter — a primary key of a table is a good choice for this purpose. So we get a nice sequential number generated all in the query with VBA function.
I have done this twice now, getting flustered. The ticket part the person keeps has the correct sequential number on it, but the side that we keep has the same number on it for the whole page. What part am I missing, at first I did not uncheck the box, but this time I did but have the same number on the stub side that we keep with the person’s name, etc
I have a job that requires me to make a serial number for each part. There is 480 parts per tray, 2400 parts a week and somehow 19,000 parts a month. So I need to find a way to have a sequence of numbers that increase by one without manually having to input each number each time before a print.
Ah sorry about the 6/9 following the 6/4, it’s suppose to be 6/4 and then 6/5. Also, where in InDesign can I make this sequential numbering system? What is the tool name for it? – user94520 May 17 ’17 at 5:26
You can use the same technique to restart a numbered list back at the first number as you did to continue with the previous list. In the Bullets and Numbering dialog box, choose Restart numbering, and then click OK.
Does anybody have an easy way to set up sequential numbering in Coreldraw? Our shop has to lay out unit number plaques for vinyl cutting and sometimes my employee has to manually type in hundreds of numbers. I’ve read all the print merge suggestions for raffle tickets and such but I need the numbers entered into an object and not during the print process.
The Nz function will return 0 if there are no records so this expression will return a 1 the first time and then increment the highest number each additional time. The key is where to put this line of code. As I said it needs to be generated immediately prior to saving the record so that another user does not get the same number. So generally I would put this behind a Save button or a button to specifically generate the number. I would then add a second line to commit the records. Either:

Add unique numbers to gift certificates By using a unique number on each certificate, you can track when gift certificates are redeemed, by whom, and for what product or service. In addition, by adding unique tracking numbers, you can ensure that the gift certificates are not duplicated or redeemed more than once.
Both the Collection Point ID and Artifact ID fields are bound properly and display those exact names in the property sheet under both control source and name. On the save button I have on the form, when I click on the event tab and the on click option I have event procedure and I click the […] option to open up the code builder and this is what I currently have:
I had the same issue on how to use a sequence of numbers for any kind of usage and http://mywebspider.com today I found the solution. I will demonstrate my steps because it was more complicated (you can see the attachement). So, I had to create a solo page for printing in a plotter that should contain 4000 different QRcodes (1000X4) with their number underneath. In my project I use 20 qrcodes in one line to fit about 1m of plotter sticker paper vinyl.
OK, so what didn’t you understand in my blog? The blog contains instructions on how to deal with this. It tells you that you do not want an LH Identifier field. It tells you that all you need is to add a Sequence field to store the Sequential number. It tells you how to base that number on the current year so it restarts with the new year, Finally it tells you how to combine the year and the sequence # with whatever else you need to display the LH identifier. These instructions are all detailed in the blog.
