Microsoft: Access Queries and JET SQL FAQ

getting an incremental value

How to get an increment dinamically for/in a query? by Cagliostro
Posted: 9 Jul 01

Create in a VBA module such code:

global IncrementVariable as integer
function IncrementValues() as integer
  IncrementVariable = IncrementVariable + 1
  IncrementValues = IncrementVariable
end function

in the query you will do

select IncrementValues(), xxx, yyy, zzz from yourTable

Each time you want to use a new counter, to reser the increment, or when you use it first time I recommend to run the code:

IncrementVariable = 0

or make a function
function ResetCounter()
  IncrementVariable = 0
end function

and call
the last reseting method is more reliable.
