Hello. I built a database using FileMaker. In my table, each record has an automatically generated ID number (specific field): 1,2,3,4 5, etc....
When I delete a record, this field is not automatically renumbered. For example, if I delete record #3, my table will contain 1,2,4,5.
Is there a way I can automatically renumber to 1,2,3,4 and ensure that the last record ID corresponds to the total number of records?
