Fields that reference themselves


     I did some searching but unable to find what I'm looking for.

     I'm attempting to create my own serial number generator without using the AutoEnter Serial number

     Can I make a Global field: FieldX

     Auto enter a calculation:  FieldX = FieldX+1

     So that every time a record is created it advances the clock by 1. (this way I can create a script later on that can change FieldX)

     I sort of answered my own question by doing it, and FM seems to be happy with it.

     Just wondering if FM will at some point pull a "HAL9000" on me.

     thank you for your time.
