Numbering records during Excel export


Hi We frequently export records to Excel and it's useful to also export the RecordNumber figure as a separate field, which I've accomplishing by doing the find, sorting, then looping through each record and writing the Get(RecordNumber) function into a '#' field on each record. Obviously this # will change for every export. But this is of course modifying the record and each data entry layout displays the username who last changed that record. Exporting a list should not count as modification, any ideas how I number each record on output without 'modifying' each record? thanks in advance
