I had the same problem. This I have done is to open the recordset programmatically and set the field's value to its line number.

I did it via ADO.
I had an empty table. There were only the fields.
I filled it with a "Insert" query, which was filling one field with "0".
I named this field "RowCount".

Then I did so:

DE1.rsMyTable.MoveFirst
While DE1.rsMyTable.Eof=False
DE1.rsMyTable.fields("RowCount").value=DE1.rsMyTable.AbsolutePosition & "/" & DE1.rsMyTable.RecordCount
DE1.rsMyTable.Movenext
wend

I filled the "of xx"
e.g. The field was 0 and I did it "1/20","2/20","3/20"... and so on.

If you have trouble simply mail me.

I'm using sqlbuilder to select fields from different table.Is there any way to create serialno using sqlbuider.something like count(rowid) in oracle.As per visual basic reply ,are you creating a table to hold all values to be shown in datareport.
Okay then what you have written something like "of xx".   I don't understand.Can you explain me in detail?

I don't know about Oracle. In Sybase there is a system variable called @@rowcount. It returns the number of line.

When I say "...of xx" I mean that when I replace the zero values in the field "Rowcount" I add the line of the record and the total number of rows.

Like when you are printing and it says "Page 1 of 3"

In my first reply I replaced the word "of" with the slash "/". No matter, if you follow these instructions you can add everything. It's a string field, not a numeric one.
