You will have to include this counter in the recordset used by the data report. One way to achieve this is to append the results of your query to a temporary table with the same structure as your recordset, but with one additonal column defined as AutoNumber.  You can then design the report based on this temporary table.

There are other ways, but this is the easiest to follow.

Hi techguy007,

1. Use the Unique ID (Primary Key), for example a Auto increment Field an do it as follow:

Example:

Select (Select count(*)+1 from Table1 b where
b.PrimaryKey < A.PrimaryKey) As SerialNumber, a.UserName, a.Age, a.JoinDate from Table1 a

2. Detail cannot include report function, but you can define your function in your SQL, then use it as a field.

Example:

Select ((A + B)/C * 256) As Total From Table Where C > 0
