      Record Number

      Post

      Hi

       

      I have some 4000 records, and I've just decided that the layout should display the Record Number, so I've added a field to the table, defined it to be a calculation field, so that "Record Number" = Get(RecordNumber).

       

      but now i have, for example, three records displaying the Record Number 3...?

       

      would appreciate some quick quidance.

       

      thanks

          actually, think I figured it out - RecordNumber does not equal a unique ID - that's in RecordID (and this bears no relation to the number of records), RecordNumber is the record number of that record within the last set of found records.

           

          So is there a way of displaying the record ID that matches with the display in the status bar?

            Your calculation with Get(RecordNumber) is correct but you need to make that calculation UNSTORED.
