I need to set up a numbered card that the client orders and the numbering continues from the last order. Not sure how to go about this?

I thought maybe a counter that the user can input start and end numbers?

Any ideas appreciated....

There is no built-in ways to do this. The COUNTER function will always start at the first number that you specify, and will reach the end value, it will not keep track of the previous job.

Of course, if the users are willing to manually keep track of the job numbering, you can manually enter the start and end numbers to the COUNTER function. (e.g. COUNTER(1000,2000) will create a counter from 1000 to 2000) But that will require manual user input before each prints. If they don't mind, however, that's probably the simplest solution.
