I want to have a button on an invoce form.  When user clicks button invoice is incremented by 1 (starting number 101) and printed.  Form is usually filled in by hand after it is printed.  Incremented number is saved for next use.  Current invoice number displayed on screen before incrementing and printing. Using Access 2003 and 2007.

    You can create an autonumber field for the invoice number and this will increment with every new record.
