  1. After some "trigger" trial and error, I am finding I cannot update an #inserted record field with a calculated value. I can manage to get a value calculated but only in an "insert" event. I have a table of text records called suffix "001" "002" "003" that are related to an account ID "12345" On submission of new data, I want the default suffix for a new record to be calculated as "004" Issue 1: Using a trigger, I can select the parent table and calculate the MAX suffix which returns "003". When I add =1, I get 4, not "004" is there a way to format the data to maintain the leading zero's? Issue 2: The only trigger I can get to make the calculation is an insert action. How can I structure the trigger to update the inserted data on submission of the new data? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. BA
