    Auto-Fill with Letters



      Auto-Fill with Letters


      I have FMPRO12 and i know how to make a sequence with numbers across multiple fields. I was wondering if theres a way to do the same thing, but with letters.

          It's possible with the right calculation. Did you really mean "across multiple fields"? Or did you really mean "across multiple records"?

          Here's a hint to point you in a possible direction:

          Option 1:

          Char ( Code ( previousletter ) + 1 )

          Option 2:

          Char ( Code ( "A" ) - 1 + SerialNumberField )

          Note that this limits you to a single letter sequence of characters. A more sophisticated approach would be needed to work with multiple characters.

            Yes, i meant across multiple records. I will give that a try and get back to you.
