Can anyone help with a solution for sequential form numbering either via nintex forms or workflow. In order to meet a client specification I’m looking to create multiple sets of sequentially numbered forms within a list.
Scott, we must be getting close to a working form, and following all the above goes well but upon clicking the button the error message I get is “You must enter a value in the Design Projects.Project ID field.” The text box on the form is bound to the table is Project ID. Naturally it is blank when the form opens. So, what next?
If you know in advance that you need outline numbering for your paragraphs, you will want to choose the correct format from the Bullets and Numbering dialog box. Applying one of the preset formats to a paragraph or paragraphs that are already bulleted or numbered applies it to the entire list. There is a specific tab for outline numbers — the Outlined Numbered tab.
I have a field called “Index name” which is displayed as a drop down on the form , this looks up from another list. I need the form/ list to generate a unique & sequential ID based upon the selected value in this drop down.

Our raffle ticket templates have a placeholder for a ticket number, usually “xxx” to remind you it needs to be replaced. Select it, click Insert Merge Field > Ticket. Do the same for the second ticket number placeholder. Most tickets will have two number placeholders because one part of the ticket is for the raffle host (you) and the other is for the purchaser.
Note: By default, Publisher opens the My Data Sources folder first. If you saved your data source in a location other than the My Data Sources folder, browse to the location where you saved your data source.
In the example I explained, I was using a list, but did it with un-linked text boxes using “continue from previous number” and “continue numbers across stories.” I’m guessing that there is no way to tell InDesign that even though there are 4 text boxes on the page, that there are two different lists? I’d probably have to just create two threaded stories for that scenario to work.
The code above is only designed to do ascending sorting. However, the field list could be modified to contain an A or D to indicate the sort order and parsed and processed in such a way that successive sorting could be done in any order using code like:
Using the Orders table created in example A, the following example declares a variable named @nextID, and then uses the NEXT VALUE FOR function to set the variable to the next available sequence number. The application is presumed to do some processing of the order, such as providing the customer with the OrderID number of their potential order, and then validates the order. No matter how long this processing might take, or how many other orders are added during the process, the original number is preserved for use by this connection. Finally, the INSERT statement adds the order to the Orders table.

But, if it is possible to create and Auto increment fields. then we can assign some unique ID to collectors. and then while merging all the data from different devices, we can easily exploite our database.
Word comes with some default Outline Numbering schemes that already have Styles attached but that doesn’t mean you are only limited to those styles or those schemes. For more information on styles, see the chapter on Styles.
Remember that you must update the values in the sheet if you want to continue the numbering series with the next batch tickets. For instance, if you want your next batch of tickets to start with 112, you’d open the workbook and change the value 100 to 112, and update the remaining values accordingly. Don’t forget to save the workbook after updating the values.
