Rookie: Backfill a serial field


I recently started using FM on an existing database with several thousand records.  When I set it up, I thought I had made the "Record Number" field auto-filling with a serial number.  Apparently I did not.  I now have a couple of hundred new records with a blank "Record Number" field.  Is there an easy way to fill the field in those records with a serial number starting at a certain number?  Keep it simple and detailed as I am clearly new at this.

Thanks for your help.  Just reading through a lot of the posts looking for an answer has provided me with some knowledge I would not have had otherwise.
