Sequntial counter

I would like to add a counter to a cell in a spreadsheet.  We have a master spreadsheet that we open enter data into then save under another name, then someone will open the master sheet again enter new data and save under a different name, etc.  I would like the sheet to get a unique sequntial identifier each time they enter new data.  I've tried a simple counter however the value resets each time I run the code.

Set the name of the counter to say  " incCounter"

In Macros for the workbook add this function and each tiome the workbook opens the counter will be incremented
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Cells.Range("incCounter") = Cells.Range("incCounter") + 1
End Sub
