I created templates using the wizards along with database files for each templates. As new sheets are created the database updates perfectly and in Column one is a record of what numbers have been used. Is there a formula iI can put in the template to find the next number to assign automatically each time a template is used.

Thanks a million. This site has taught me so much.

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

=MAX(A:A)+1

would be the next number following the last ascending number in A.
