I have a meetings database with a field for meeting number and a field for item number. these are meetings that are held for a particular project. so a project can have many meetings and a meeting can have many items of discussion.


So I have meeting No. 4 on my data entry layout. What I want is a field that will take the 4 and add a .01, .02, etc for each new discussion item.


So  I would have in my minutes portal in the meeting details layout a field that would auto populate each time a new item was added to that meeting



4.03, etc.


Would this even be a calculation field. Not sure how to proceed
