I want to use an input box so that the next number can be entered. I want the message on the input box to say the last number used was (blah,blah), I know that  DLast ("aceuip", "EquipMaster") will get me the last used number but cant figure out how to put the whole message together

Something like this:

InputBox "Last number used: " & DMax("[aceuip]", "EquipMaster") & " . Please enter next number"

Why not just generate the next number?

NZ(DMAX("aceuip", "EquipMaster"), 0) + 1
