Hello community,

Could you please help me to use the auto-increment field in a form?
I've added one, but he keeps asking for a Number group, and I don't know what it is, nor where should I put it.

I've looked on the knowledge database without success.
Thank you in advance.

Hi Jalila, I also had a hard time figuring out how to configure the number groups - they can also be used without forms so the configuration area is not actually in the forms area but in the file cabinet dialog itself.  They're setup in the store dialog that you're using with the form so you'll need to go into the file cabinet settings, find the store dialog you're using, and then find the field.  When you set the 'Predefined Entry' of the field to "Automatic Numbering" you'll see the bottom of the panel change so you can setup and configure a number group.
