      Auto numbering in portal


           Hi.Let's say there are 2 tables. First one is customer and the other one is invoice. In a customer layout, I put a portal to show related records from invoice table. How can I put numbers starting from "1" in the portal. In other words, I want to put number list in the portal. Etc.

           Customer 2


      1. Invoice 3

      2. Invoice 5

               If you just need the value for display purposes, just put the "record number symbol" as layout text in the portal row.

               In versions of Filemker earlier than 12, use @@ as your layout text.

               For FileMaker 12, use the Insert Menu to insert the "record number symbol" to get {{RecordNumber}} for the same purpose.
