Microsoft Access Forum

Welcome to the Microsoft Access Forum. Access is by far our most popular topic here at Computer Learning Zone. This forum is for everyone to read but only students (paid customers) can post here. If you'd like to become a student, all you have to do is enroll in one of my courses. After you create a logon, you will have full access to the Forums.

Having problems with your Access database? Before posting your question, check to see if it's already been answered. You can use the Search feature to look for keywords. There's also the Access Troubleshooting Checklist which covers solutions to many common problems. If neither of those things help, make sure you post exactly what you're doing, what the specific error message is, what you've tried, and any other details we might need to help you. Don't just say, "I get an error." Tell us what the error is and what you're doing. We're not mind readers. I wish. LOL

Hello Richard

I am wondering which lesson to watch the situation is when I started this database I use the auto number as a way of of tracking how many customers I have now I would like to change this is as the auto number is only for access as you have said in future lessons I'm wondering how do I set up a column to put on the form to show customer five which is an auto number at the current time is customer five

Would appreciate any suggestions Michelle

Michelle, you shouldnt use an autonumber as a Customer #, if you delete a record then add another your count wont match. autonumbers are internal for access to track relationships etc

There are many options you can use:
- Custom Sequential Counter Number
- Create Customer Codes
- AutoNumbers Good or Bad?
- Automatic Record Numbering

Is just a sequential number ok?

You could use this Tip: DMax: Increment Your Own Counter
I'm sure its similar to one of the above.
