Re: Auto Serial Number function not working in FLMSG
Hello Larry: Thank you for taking time to write back. I'm responding to both of your last two messages here:
I don't mind at all being
asked to make sure that I've got the "add a serial number to a
message" box checked. I've entered a variety of different
starting numbers with the serial number box
checked in the FLMSG configuration set up for naming files. I
always get the same result. Even after opening a new file and
using a different form (or the same form) the suggested default
name for new message file is always same and the serial number
never increases. This happens whether or not I include the
date/time in file names.
If other users aren't
experiencing this problem the only explanation that occurs to me
is that it's because we're running different operating systems.
Again, I'm using Windows 7 Pro.

I know this may seem like a silly question but.... In the Config, Files/Formatting screen you do have Serial box checked and the previos number is showing up?

Same thing -- I can set whatever serial number I want but FLMSG never increases it when I send a new message.

You can't simply reuse the original message.

(1)The idea that the programming includes a subroutine to automatically increase serial numbers is an assumption on my part.(What would be the point of deliberately giving different messages the same serial number?) (2)This happens even though I am opening and sending a /new message/ on a /new form/, (not just editing and resending an existing, saved file.) I’m curious if this happens on other platforms:Mac, Windows 10, Linux, Android…
