Revert records don't advance serial number

Revert records don't advance serial number




At the moment I have problem with my database.


I have a layout that registers my projects. In this Layout I have a field that is auto generated by serial.


I have some other fields that have to be "not empty". When I don't fill these fields the application returns the revert record error. If I decide to revert record, because I want to cancel the creation of a new project, it passes on to a new project, but the serial number advances.


What I want to do is that when I revert a record or cancel it in any other way, the serial number goes back to the last number before doing this action.


I don't really know how to explain this in another way.


Will be very thankful if someone can help me with this.


Thank you very much.
