I am looking for some help on a VBA

I am looking for some help on a VBA

(OP)
I am looking for some help on a VBA function that would do the following

1) I Have a table that has one of the fields that has multiple values (Field1). An adjoining field is called ranking and it has null values. Thus for instance the value 411 could be repeated 2, or 3 times in Field1
2) I want the Function, or Procedure to look at the first value in Field1 and assign a 10 in the Ranking field. If there are more than one record with the same value (411) it would go to the second record and assign an increment of 10. So the second record with the value 411 in Field1 would have 20.
3) If the third record is, say 412, the ranking filed would reset to 10 and follow the same logics as in (2) above.

Thanks for your help

RE: I am looking for some help on a VBA

Hi,

Here's my test table...

Field1	Field2
411	10
411	20
411	30
412	10
412	20
413	10
414	10
414	20
414	30
414	40
 

Formula in B2...

B2: =IF(A2=A1,B1+10,10)

...and copy/paste down.

So why use a program when a simple formula will suffice?

Skip,

Thanks Skip. That's the exact formula that I am using in EXCEL. However I want to emulate that function in Ms ACCESS. Any suggestions?
