Note When you customize a number scheme, Word replaces the original numbering scheme in the Numbered tab of the Bullets and Numbering dialog box. To return to Word’s default numbering schemes, click Reset.
The problem with your document is that you have put everything into textboxes instead of into the table cells you have below them. You also don’t need the \* MERGEFORMAT switch that every SEQ field in your document now has.
However, when I click on this button in Form view it just makes the number back to 1 instead of adding 1 to the existing records. Is this because when I open the form it brings me to record number 1 and not the last record I entered?
FONT TIP: Do not use any fonts that start with a period. For example, instead of using ”.Helvetica” use ”Helvetica” instead. Fonts that start with a period in the font menu are not compatible with Number Press.

Ok, generating a random 3 digit number is a whole different thing, so I’m not going to go into that. If you want your numbers to start at 100 (to insure three digits) then change the 0 to 99. The Nz function will return the value listed if the field is Null. So the first time you execute that code, the DMax should return a Null since no numbers have been generated for the PONum field. The Nz will then substitute 99 and then increment that by 1. You can accomplish something similar by just entering 100 as the PONum for one record. .

I’ve also been using NumberPress for about a year and it is awesome. You can easily position numbers as many up per form and as many up on a sheet as you will ever need. Easily change font, color, point size, angle, number of digits and can even customize prefix-ex: instead of No. you can print ABC or a form number. It also does variable data (I’ve only used a couple of times).Took a little while to learn but is now a piece of cake.
I have attached a file I am attempting to configure with sequential #’s. I have (I think) placed the switches and other codes correctly, but the numbering is a bit screwy. Will you take a peek and let me know your thoughts?
