How to Increment Data

The Increment Data functions will allow quick numeric offset of multiple selected data fields.

Advanced Increment

  1. Select data to be incremented.

  2. Select Advanced Increment from the Context Menu or Edit Menu. The Advanced Increment Configuration dialog box will be displayed.

    • A positive increment value will cause the field value for all selected records to increase.

    • A negative increment value will cause the field value for all selected records to decrease.

    • A zero or blank increment will cause no change in the field values.

    • Tick Inc/Dec Sequentially, if you wish to increment or decrement all highlighted fields in each successive highlighted record by one more step (of your increment values) than the previous record.

Quick Increment/Decrement

If you wish to perform a quick increment/decrement by one then select Increment/Decrement from the Context Menu or Edit Menu. Note that if the data you select is all the same value a sequential increment/decrement will be performed automatically.

Shortcut Keys
