I want to number all my companies; I have a huge project that requires me to research certain items of each company in my act database. Unfortunaly, each time I do it I sometimes end up spending time on companies I have already completed. I feel if I were to number the companies then I could say, today I'm doing 1-20 tomrrow 20-40, and then it won't over lap. Also Is there a way to auto generate a number each time a new company is created?

What I do is either create a dedicated field (Tools | Define fields) called "To be cleaned" or I use one of the user fields (USER 1, USER 2, etc).
This way I don't keep doing records I've already done. I'm equally sure there are a number of other ways to do this.

DesignR1's Swiss Army Knife might let you auto number.
Exponencial has a field calc tool, that could probably do it to - although don;t think it "fires" auto-magically...
If you have TopLine Designer, it could be scripted...
All that said, previous suggestion would work nicely...
