Create a number when a new record is created


I want to create a number when a new record is created. This will be an order form number. Is their a way to do this via a formula so you don’t have to do this manually.


Not sure that it’s you are looking for, but it sounds that the autonumber field type is exactly this, but it depends if you can afford holes in the sequence as deleting records keep the sequence to increment by one.
