Hello,

I was wondering if you could make a serial number continue.. What i mean is.....lets say that i have to continue a serial number i cell F5 and i need it to automatically update to the next number (e.g.100 next time i open the sheet i need it to be 101)...

any help would make my life a little easier thanks.........

The issue would be that in order to serial number to hold, some one needs to save the file

You can either have number increase when book is open or close. for that open VBE (ALT + F11) and press CTRL + R and then double click on "ThisWorkbook". There depending on you want to go for close or open, pick the right event from the drop down and code it there
