    How can I set up a auto creation of an ID number but only when a check box is checked? I have a "Funder" check box and need the "Funder ID" to be created only when the check box is checked. Thanks

      Hi, non profit novice new to filemaker here.

      I'm trying to create a unique ID for records specified as "Funders" (field is a check box set with values of yes / no)

      When the Funders box is checked ideally it would auto enter a Funder ID, like a serial number.

      I know how to do this upon creation for every record but I only need it for records where the Funder ID box is checked.

       

      Thanks
