Welcome to Chandoo.org

Paste the below formula in the Column D1 or where ever


The Above formula count only unique No. not the duplicate

Now Place this code in UserForm

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
TextBox1.Value = Worksheets("Daily Transaction").Range("D1").Value + 1
TextBox1.Value = Format(TextBox1.Value, "0000")
End Sub
Now you will get the Number in UserForm TextBox1

Hope it give some idea, other wise please upload a sample file

Hi Ben,

Do you need to auto generate the job number? If so then put the below code in the submit button.

<Sheet name>.<Range name>= <Required Number>

If you need more help then send me the sample work book I will do it for you.

Abdul, yeah i need to auto generate the number, not to worried about where that number comes from just needs to be an identifier for jobs

Brilliant, Thanks Patnaik, thats pretty much it, dont know if you noticed but there are several other issues on the form

do you by any chance know how to keep a table row hidden when filters are used?

Sorry i didn't check the UserForm Totally just i add a extra line in there that's all and what type of error you are getting in the form and where you will get a Circular Reference Warning, i didn't get any circular reference warning in my pc

I think there is a formula in B1 Kindly remove that and now you didn't get the circular reference warning and i have place the formula in the Column Y1

kindly inform if any issue
