I have a subform which displays a selection, based on a query, of records from a main table. Is there an easy way to add a text box with a sequential number for each record.
The form displays using a Continuous Forms format.

There may be an easier way but this works:

Add a module and paste the following in:

Public intCounter As Integer

Public Function Counter() As Integer
    intCounter = intCounter + 1
    Counter = intCounter
End Function

Add a text box and change the control source to:
=Counter()

You need to add intCounter = 0 to somewhere where the subform data is changed.  This may be in the main form or something, but I think it would also work in the subform under Form_DataSetChange() or Form_DataChange().  I'm not a hundred percent sure on that part.

I don't know what your knowledge is of VBA, so let me know if this is beyond you and I'll try to explain it better.

Thanks Dizzt95

That worked perfectly. Took a little experimaentatin to work out where to put the intCounter = 0  - but I managed it, even though I am certainly no VBA expert. m learning gradually though.

In this case I put it in the main form, where I have requery statements that run the subforms including the one I needed this for.

Many thanks
