what i am trying to accomplish here is to have a certain field auto-enter a text value. that text values are P1, P2, P3, and so on. so, for the first 18 records, the text value should auto-enter P1, the next 18 records (19-36) would be "P2.," and so on. as you can see, every increment of 18 records, the text value changes.
thank you and appreciate all your replies and assistance.
