Numbering of records

Hi people,

I am sure most of you have already solved the Access' stupid problem: there
is no simple way of numbring of records shown in a continuous form, needed
so often (top-lists, achieved place in a contest...). Could you suggest any

Thank you,

Rownumber.zip is a database containing functions for the automatic row
numbering of Forms, SubForms and Queries.

Updated Oct. 13 by Allen Browne. Includes error handling and cleaned

Here's an update to the Serialize function by Peter Schroeder:

Good to hear. FWIW, here's the version I came up with today, based off
of your code and Ken's(Getz) suggestion, with a few changes:
Function Serialize(qryna me As String, keyname As String, keyvalue) As

Dim rs As Recordset
On Error GoTo Err_Serialize

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenR ecordset(qrynam e, dbOpenDynaset, dbReadOnly)

rs.FindFirst Application.Bui ldCriteria(keyn ame, rs.Fields(keyna me).Type,

Serialize = Nz(rs.AbsoluteP osition, -1) + 1


Set rs = Nothing

End Function
