Hi all,
My form has a job number field in it with a numerical value.  I have an active link that will get the last job number submitted (using LASTID) and add 1 to it & then set the current/new form with the new number.  This works fine..... until I log out & log back in again (RemedyUser) and then it starts from the number 1 all over again. How can I stop it from doing this?  I want it to get the value from the last form submitted regardless of when that was, rather than start from scratch.

Hope I've explained myself well enough!

Thanks heaps :)
