auto number index snafu
I have a 2003 DB I've been adding to for 2 years. It's at 423 records =
I export to a PDF for simpler searching and viewing.
Using the search the other day, I went to grab DVD 186, on carousel tower=
And what came up didn't match the record.
The index was totally screwed.
I went thru all 423 records and created a numeric index by hand. The auto
number field is useless.
But I would still prefer an auto number field.
Trouble is when I create the auto number field, it's still off the actual
numbers of the records..
ie: 99-100 is actually 99-186,187, 188, 189 100-385,...Auto assign Lot Numbers in PO receiving
Has anyone made a customization to auto assign Lot numbers upon item
receipt? My client's lot number is numeric, they want the system to auto

Yes indeed, I created one for a client. You probably will not be able to
use it as-is because of some client specific functionality but
I'm sure you could use this as a stepping stone.
The key features were that it would allow for rapid lot number entry by

I have a fomula in a cell that takes the name of a person (from cell 2B),
their License number (from another cell 2C)and the Date that License Expires
(From cell 2D). The expire date in "2D" is either the word "none" or a date
that that persons license needs to be renewed.
Those instructors with "None" come out in the calculated field fine, however
the ones with dates come back as whole numbers, Example 8/6/10 shows 40396.

...Ordering by number and text
I use a report to print out checklists that in the detail section have item
number to delineate each checklist item. The item numbers as an example are
1-1, 1-2, 1-2a, 1-2b, or 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, 2-3a, 2-3b and so on. The report is
grouped by checklist section and the grouping works perfectly but when the
report is printed the item numbers are ordered in this order 1-1, 1-10, 1-11,
1-2, 1-3, 1-3a, 1-3b, 1-4, 1-5, 1-6, 1-7, 1-9.
Obviously I want the the order to be in proper numerical sequence where 1-10
comes after 1-9. but even replacing the '-' with a decimal point doesn't

I can't figure out how to format numbers so that when you type 3220 it will look like 32.20 kinda like how you can enter numbers on an adding machine. I would greatly appreciate this number format code. Thank you.
I think you want to go Tools | Options | Edit | Fixed Decimals - 2.
That will divide all the numbers you enter by 100.
You will also have to format the row or column to display 2 decimals.
Select the cells or range, right mouse click, format cells, numbers, 2

There is no automatic way to do this but take a look a Tushar's
