Create a simple number counter

The following example illustrates how to create a record called employee in the Sequential Number File to automatically increment employee numbers starting with 1.

  1. Access the Sequential number file.
  2. Create a new file. Type employee in the Class field for this example.
  3. Type 0 in the Last Number field to begin incrementing from zero.
  4. Type a short description for the number class.
    For example: Employee ID number counter.
  5. Type 1000 in the Reset Point field.
  6. Type 1 for the Increment/Decrement field value.
    Since the Decrement field was left blank, each number will increase by one.
  7. Click Add.
    The new sequential number record is added to the sequential number file.
