Increment a text box in an Access Report

   My issue:
        I have generated a report in Access, I have a text box that I need to increment by 1 starting at any given number.  I haven't found much help on the web dealing with this case, I have tried several options in getting the accomplished.  The running sum option would be great if I could start at 1 on every report.  So think of it like this, I need the running sum functionality but starting with a variable provided by a query.

Create a hidden text box (ie Visible property set to No), set its control source to =1, and then set its RunningSum property to whatever you want.

Now, in the text box where you want to display the value, set its control source to something like:

Where MyHiddenTextBox is the name of the running sum text box and 200 is your start value (less 1).
