Use decrement in sequential numbers

You can use sequential numbers to decrement a starting value. For example, you can decrement a quantity field when deleting stock from inventory. This example shows you how to decrement a value starting at 1000.

  1. For this example, type active.devices in the Class field.
  2. Type 1000 in the Last Number field.
  3. Type a short description for the number class.
    For example, type Number of devices available.
  4. Type true in the Decrement field.
  5. Type 0 in the Reset Point field.
  6. Type 1 for the Increment/Decrement field value.
    Since the Decrement field is set to true, each number decreases by one.
  7. Click Add.
    The new sequential number record is added to the sequential number file.
