Changing all Request for Quote to 2014


     Hello everyone,

     My name is Jon and I'm completely new to the Filemaker program.  I know enough about this program to be dangerous and have been using it for about 6 months now and know the basics.

     My problem I am having is I am the new IT guy for the company and the previous IT guy left without showing anyone how he created these request for quotes.

     What he did was, we have request for quotes automatically genterated when we make a new quote.  Now this generates a RFQ # that starts with "13" for year 2013.  Every year he used to change that starting number to what year is currently was.  I need this number to now obviously be "14" but do not know how to change it to all the new RFQ's.  


     We are using Filemaker pro V9, our Filemaker is shared on a server to all of our computers.

     Here is a screen shot of our RFQ to help anyone. (the number circled is what we need changed)
