You can stick with the design in the template or create your own. To change the design, just click and delete the existing graphic or background you want to change. Click the Add Image box from the menu on the left, then browse to find the new image you wish to use.
Tip Follow the same steps (above) to create Request for Production or Request for Admissions. The only difference would be in Step 3, you would change the “rog” to “rpf” or “rfa”. This will keep unique numbering schemes running in the same document. Therefore, you could have an Interrogatory No.1 as well as Request for Production No.1. Keep in mind that if you cut, copy or paste sequence codes, you’ll need to select them and press F9 to update the field codes. They do not update automatically.
The code block should not need to be modified (unless you want to implement sorting that can be ascending or descending as mentioned below). The first three parameters of the expression are required. Most of the time only the first two parameters of the expression are all that must be modified.
So if you encountered this problem, then you didn’t follow the instructions completely (which is OK) and appear to be automatically generating the number whenever the record is accessed. If that’s the case, then you are risking duplication because you are not saving the generated number immediately. Rather then try to test if a number already exists as you seem to be doing, you should not automatically generate the number, but trigger the generation from some action in the form.
Warning Do not delete the number that appears in the Format box. If you do so accidentally, select a number style from the Number Style drop-down list to put it back. If the Overtype feature is active, this will cause the number to be easily deleted.
• The numbers have to be random on the raffle tickets for this to work. In order to be sure you have no duplicate (winning) numbers you have to literally write down each number for each raffle ticket (that’s 1000 numbers – a lot of work).
If the number happens to reset with a new user on a different computer that is fine. I have decided that each user will have another field to enter their initials or a number unique only to them that will prevent confusion on duplicate numbers. For example: AB4583 (hard coded #)-______ (unique number propagates here) – _____ (User enters their initials or # here)
UUIDs are not pretty to look at, and from a practical perspective, impossible to remember. This is the reason why they do not quite fit the bill for the ‘Ticket Number’ problem either. I wanted to bring this up anyways, because in some cases where you need a unique identifier, even if it is not human friendly, the use of the uuid() function could be handy.
If you are designing a gift certificate or coupon from scratch, you can either start with a completely blank publication or adapt an existing publication. Small-sized publication types, such as business cards, postcards, and labels can be adapted to serve as coupons. Flyers or brochures can be adapted for use as gift certificates.
I have screen shots of what I have in my db, where can I send it to you (it is in word format) so that you can take a look at it to see what I am doing wrong. I took a screen shot of what is listed for the button and I took a screen shot of the text box Job No. I don’t know how to bound anything other than put the code behind the button and putting the Job_No in the code as you stated. I understand what you are saying, but I thought if I put the text box name Job No in the code behind the button then it would be bound to my table with the Job No field. Heeeelllllppppp!!!! I am sorry that I can’t seem to grasp this….but appreciate all of your help!
Even though it looks like I clicked on the numbering button at the top, I did not. I applied the list number style. That style has different indents and a different font. Those are the settings in the List Number Style.
CK Note: I strongly recommend reading the following article. It may save your sanity (or at least your job). See Word’s Numbering Explained by John McGhie. Somewhat easier reading and still very useful are Shauna Kelly’s articles (see above) on outline numbering and bullets.
Creating a sequential list of numbers, in Word, sounds like an intimidating task. Sure, you can create a numbered list quickly enough, but that feature works with additional text – you’re numbering something. If you want a list of just numbers, you have to work a bit harder. Word’s SEQ field might come to mind, but that solution is better suited to template-type numbering. In order words, this field works great if you’re numbering documents, labels, and so on. It doesn’t work so well if you just want to create a list of sequential numbers. You can use it that way, but it’ll be more work than it’s worth.
