Hi,
I have database with all the company's employees particulars and details inside.
When printing reports, i would like a 'Serial No.' column for each employee which runs consecutively from one employee to another. This serial no. need not be in the 'table' because i only need it to appear in my report.

I tried using the 'Auto-Number' function but the serial no. column does not run consecutively if i delete one of the employees record. It would go like ...

1.
2.
3.
5.
6.

In this case, the serial no. '4.' is deleted as the employee that had the serial no. '4' assigned to it using the auto-number function has been removed from the database. Really hope u all could help me in this.

Thank You.

Just place a new field and enter in the datasource (c.q. directly in the field):
=1
Now goto the properties and set the "Running sum" property to "Yes"

Clear ?
