Auto-Increment Counter for Portal Rows

Hi, you all.  I'm new to this community channel
but excited to share, and initially, hopefully get some help!
I've got what I think is a tricky question for ya all

My FileMaker app has an unfiltered portal with a field I have named "Counter"
(please see image)

 

I wish for this Counter field to somehow number all the rows in my portal
and be flexible enough that if I insert a row (I hope to find a way to do that, too) then

all the portal row's "Counter" value will increase by one to make room for the newly inserted portal row,

and the opposite, of course, if a portal row is deleted, then all the subsequent numbers will decrease

by 1.

 

Thanks for your advice,
