I'd like to have a form with a field that auto numbers - but i need to be able to specify the starting number value.

For example - A form for a list of projects with an autonumber field where the first project is numbered 11932 and the next project is numbered 11933 etc.

What is the easiest way to achieve this with Forms designer?


Many thanks!

    The best option is to build a workflow that populates the autonumber field based on ID by formula: ID + starting number. Configure it to start when an item is created.
