resetting serial numbers


Recommended Posts


I am new with FMpro7 an I hope someone can help me out.

I have imported a database from ACCESS to Filemaker. In one of the tables, I would like to generate a new ID field (automatic serial number). The thing is I dont know how to make it. I know how to generate it for a new record but not for the previous ones.

Does someone know how to do that?

Hi Nyto,


go to the serial field, select from the menubar->records -> replace contents, and choose "serial number" from the dialog, starting at 1 or the suggested value, whichever you prefer.


replace contents is available as a script step, if you perform this action regularly.
