auto-enter receipt numbers
I am very inexperienced at this whole database thing. This is the first time I have been responsible at setting up a database. We are using Apple Macs with the snow leopard O/S. The database is being shared online through a online sharing utility. We are using Filemaker pro 10.
The database is a contact list with around 30000 entries. We have recorded names, addresses, email, history etc.
We are a non-profit organization that can issue tax receipts.
I am trying to setup a layout that we can use as a tax receipt. That way all the address details will be there automatically.
I have tried to setup an auto-enter receipt number but can't seem to get it to work. I used the "manage database" and set the field up as a number with "auto-enter Serial, Always Validate". Nothing comes up in the field.
I would like a new, unique, sequential number to show whenever that field is selected.
Am I able to do that?
