Anyone who has used another numbering software can tell you that placing the numbers is a nightmare… but not with Number Press. Just go into the Quick Layout, and click exactly where you’d like the numbers to appear — up to 128 of them! And, unlike other numbering programs, we actually SHOW you what number you’ve placed. You can also rotate any numbers you wish to whatever angle you’d like. It’s so cool and fast!
Yes, it is certainly possible to do it without VBA at all. One possible method is to write a subquery that counts all rows up to this row. This also assumes there is a primary key that you can use and you can define a sort order. Here’s a sample SQL:
As for that error, you need to find what line of code is generating it. If the error message has a Debug choice use it to see what line of code. If not, you need to step through the code to see where it errors out.

You can use the Customize button to modify the outline numbered lists to your specifications. When you modify a list, it changes that placeholder’s preset numbering format. This is how you save your customizations. You have seven presets and they are stored in the Registry key List Gallery Presets.
it can be done with almost any software that has print merge function (we use corel draw a lot for such jobs). you create a excel file with numbers, and merge them into design. once you learn it it is easy and fast.
OK, First, you need to reread the blog. You should NOT be storing the Transaction_ID. It is a calculated value. Second, your naming is what confused me. Your Passenger table should have an autonumber PassengerID. That PassengerID should be the Foreign Key in your Reservations table. Your servation table should also have an autonumber for ReservationID. I really don’t see why you need sequential numbering in the passenger table. I can understand it in the table, but not in the passenger table. Also, I don’t see any reason for a transaction date in the passenger table. I can understand a CreateDate for when the passenger signed up.
indicating the tenth inquiry of 2009. You can use that as the Controlsource of a control on a form or report. In a query you would preface with an Alias rather than the equals sign (i.e.; Inquiry Code:).
Uniqueness is not automatically enforced for sequence values. The ability to reuse sequence values is by design. If sequence values in a table are required to be unique, create a unique index on the column. If sequence values in a table are required to be unique throughout a group of tables, create triggers to prevent duplicates caused by update statements or sequence number cycling.
Please guide me that i have Purchase order in one excel sheet i.e 200 pages i want to know any formula for footer page number which should be permanent Means i have 1st purchase order of 3 pages, 2nd purchase order for 4 pages and 3rd purchase order for 2 pages. each purchase order has different Serial number but all in one excel sheet i.e sheet1. i inserted footer page no of ? which generate 1 of 9, 2 of 9 etc. Please guide i want to segerate the footer page number for 1st page order 1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3 of 3. 2nd purchase order should have footer page number 1 of 4, 2 of 4 etc and hence for 3rd purchase order. looking forward for your guidance
Not everything is lost, because you can augment your Ticket Number with some additional data to reduce the changes of creating duplicates. You can for example use the username of the currently logged in user. This can be achieved by using the function property(‘username’). This would leave your Ticket Number expression as:
We use the auto page numbering trick here, the trick is to do it as spreads. You just make your pages the same size as the ticket with crops and bleeds. Then set up the shell on the master page and place your auto page number where you want your numbers. Each pages is the next number. You can also have two sets of numbers for perforated ticket. You then can use the page start options to add to the numbers and keep the same number of total numbers. For example you would do a new page start after number 99. 0001 to 0099 so it doesn’t add two “0’s” to the front of 100 and you get 00100 when you want 0100. Works great for small quantities, we have done up to 1000+ tickets and once you do it once or twice it is a snap to set up. To avoid having to do 1000 pages just send the tickets in groups. Usually between 25 to 100 at a time works good depending on artwork file size. Just save each time before sending to printer and name the file with what the tickets are. Like “MyTickets-0001-0100.Indd”. Makes it easier to go back if you have a problem. You can even do two rolls of tickets if your using 12 x 18 sheets by flipping the sheet and doing one row along the top and one along the bottom on reverse side. That is if your ticket is single Sided. Two sided tickets are a bit trickier. 🙂
My only critique of the script it that it does not appear that the script preserves the original feature ObjectIDs of the original data for purposes of doing a join back to your original feature class/table (assuming you need to preserve that table). If you can modify the original table’s schema you could first create and calculate a field that stores the original ObjectIDs in a Long Interger field. The tool output will contain that field, which would allow you to do a join back to the original for labeling, symbolizing or transfering the new sequential IDs back into a field located in your original feature class.
Instead of a merge, use a page of labels with six SEQ fields set for different sequences and with an interval of 6. The first page would be your initial set of fields with numbering 1, 35, 69, 103, 137, and 171.
The fastest way to get numbers into your document is to click the Numbering button on the Formatting toolbar. This button gives you either Word’s default numbering scheme in your document (1, 2, 3) or the last numbering scheme used during this session of Word. Word’s default numbers are Arabic numerals followed by a period.
Note: To help prevent replacing existing data when you drag the fill handle, ensure the Alert before overwriting cells check box is selected. If you do not want Excel to display a message about overwriting cells, you can clear this check box.
This is about the 4th time I’ve ordered ticket from you and each time I’ve been impressed with the quality and rapid turn around. But we still seem to have problems with the size of the logo on the back; would like it to be larger than the finished product. Maybe we can get it next year!
The blog is pretty much step by step. Where it may not be that specific is, because, these are decisions the developer needs to make. For example, where to put the DMax expression is a matter of your workflow so I can’t tell you where to put it. I’ve given tips in the blog to help you decide. If you are having issues, then please give me more info about your application and I can suggest things.
Hi – are you creating your own tickets using the instructions on this page? If so, you can of course change the font and everything else in your Word document. If you are using the Raffle Ticket Creator app (app.raffleticketcreator.com) then you can’t change the font size … you’ll just need to tinker with the exact words that you are including in order to get them to fit on the page. Hope that helps!
• 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).

Several websites assist people holding e-tickets to check in online in advance of the twenty-four-hour airline restriction. These sites store a passenger’s flight information and then when the airline opens up for online check-in the data is transferred to the airline and the boarding pass is emailed back to the customer. With this e-ticket technology, if a passenger receives his boarding pass remotely and is travelling without check-in luggage, he may bypass traditional counter check-in.
If you have a SQL Server backend, you could just use the windows function ROW_NUMBER() and define it as a part of a SQL Server view. This is probably the simplest, no-nonsense method that works well for any purposes. This was introduced in SQL Server 2005 so chances are high you can use it if you can create views.
You have the freedom and choice to pick which of the existing Odoo number sequences to use. You can also create your own ticket sequence and use it by linking it to your heldesk team in the helpdesk configuration menu. Also, you can opt to disable/enable the tagging of the tickets from the helpdesk settings. Set a default behavior for all tickets that do not have a specific support team to handle in the Odoo general Settings.
I had wanted to create a file that didn’t require Excel as the data source, so I created one using SEQ fields. It was terrible and too huge to mention (thanks Doug Robbins), so I recreated it using Word as the data source so that people who only have Word can use it. You can create up to 5,000 tickets without changing the data file. If you only have Word and need to create more than 5,000 tickets, please don’t type the ticket numbers. Just drop me an email and I’ll create another data file for you with the required numbers.
Numbering raffle tickets can be a rough project to tackle without the right tools. Luckily you can number raffle tickets or any other document or form with a desktop publishing software program you may already own like Microsoft Word, Publisher, Adobe Indesign or CorelDraw or any desktop publishing software that has a mail merge function. Then all that is needed is a program that can create the mail merge file you need to number your tickets like starting number, ending number, prefix and so on. And for that program we suggest Number-Pro.
No price — just Extract the .VLX files from the .ZIP files attached to Post 3, into whatever support file location you use for things like this, and use APPLOAD to load them. [I haven’t tried them, so I’m not sure whether the file names are also the command names you would then use.]
As you’ve seen, the identifier is built using other data besides the sequence number. Since this other data is a part of the record, you don’t want to store this identifier since that means storing the same data twice. That’s why we use an expression to display the identifier rather than store it.
I use a little program called “Number It” I purchased on E-bay a couple of years ago. It will print the ticket (from bmp file) and number on the Canon 3200 in one pass. BW or Color. Nice little program and well worth the $50-80 price.
Hi Scott, Thank you for a very informative Blog. I am however stuck. I need to create a sequence for patient record cards based on their LastName. ie For names beginning with “A” =A001, then A002, For names beginning with “B =”B001, then B002 etc.

By clearing the Prefix and Suffix fields and setting the the other options to start at number one we can instruct FileBoss to rename the files by replacing the the name (not the extension) with a serial number.
Thank you for these instructions!! I’m using them to auto number my son’s baseball team raffle tickets which we hand numbered last year (UGH!). I followed the instructions exactly but for some reason the numbering is starting at 2 every time. I did deselect the checkbox about the column headers which seems the obvious culprit. Any ideas? I’m using Word on a PC. Thanks!!
Many sport, concert venues, and cinemas use electronic ticketing for their events. Electronic tickets, or “eTickets” as they are sometimes referred, are often delivered as PDFs or another downloadable format that can be received via email or through a mobile app. Electronic tickets allow spectators to download their tickets, as opposed to waiting for physical tickets to arrive in the mail. A printed copy of these tickets or a digital copy on a mobile phone should be presented on coming to the venue. These tickets now normally also have a barcode, which may be scanned on entry into the venue to streamline crowd processing. Electronic tickets have become increasingly prevalent in the entertainment industry over the last decade.
In this scenario we are assuming that there will be no more than 999 documents attached to a case. In Scenario 2 we assumed no more than 9999 inquires during a year. So you need to adjust the number of zeros when formatting Sequence for the anticipated number of records. Of course this can always be changed later. You also don’t need to format the sequence with leading zeros as the Format function does. As shown the expression returns something like: DCASD/CI123-025 for the 25th document in case CI123 for client DCASD. Without leading zeros it would be: DCASD/CI123-25. The advantage to the latter is that you don’t have to anticipate the number of records you might have in the sequence, but I’ve found many users prefer a more uniform number with the leading zeros.
