I have an excel spreadsheet that we fill out for delivery notes.

Sometimes we forget to manually change the delivery note numbers and end up duplicated numbers.

I've never created a macro before but I was wondering if I could install a counter on the spreadsheet

However I am not sure if this is the right thing to do as it wont be automated.

So am i better off creating a database, this may be a little more complicated to set up but then I can link my client details, product details and never have a duplicate delivery note number.

Advice on this would be appreciated.

Thank you
