Yes there is. Assuming you mean you want to autonumber GVE001 to GVE250 (not VGE in your post)

Add another field of type “autonumber”

Add a field of type “formula” and add the following

CONCACTENATE(‘GVE’,name of your autonumber field)

Hope that helps!


i dont understand, would you send a video? thanks and sorry

as @Andrew_Davies mentioned

You will need 2 columns for that.

  1. Name column created with formula CONCACTENATE(‘VGE’,name of your autonumber field)
  2. Column with type Autonumber
