Change a field with a serial number

Hello,

Is it possible to create a script to change a field in "define fields" with a serial number.

In ScriptMaker we can use the step "Open Define fields", but is it also possible to open a field in Define fields?

What I want is the posibility to reset the serial number.

Like to hear some ideas on this matter.

Greetings,

Jukkie

Well I've changed my mind ... I had deleted my answer but:

Script Step Set Next Serial Value and calculation help of:

GetNextSerialValue ( fileName ; fieldName )

... if you want to know what the value WAS to use within your calculation. I didn't know what you want to set it TO. :^)

Replace Field Contents[] can increment a serial (and update field definitions) but you can't apply a calculated result AND update the incrementing field definition. And it would insist on changing an existing field value (because that is this script-steps purpose).
