Consecutive numbers on a report in access 2007

Last Modified: 2013-11-28
I have a report created in access 2007 which displays items in a quotation.  The report acts like a continuous form, with each record displaying as a single row- these are my quotation items.  What I need is to add a serial number to each row so that it displays like this:

1.  Bunk Bed
2.  Office Desk
3.  Climbing Frame

(the list will range from 1 item to many items)

I can't use the primary keys of the items because they are dynamically added and won't be consecutive. Is there a way to create a variable in VB and run some code "behind the scenes" to generate these numbers?
