Any ideas on how to populate primary column with sytem generated numbers?

One workaround would be to hide the column and next to it add an auto generated column.
Another workaround would be to add your system generated column and then in the Primary Column use a formula such as
=[Sys Gen Column Name]@row

Hi there, thank you for your suggestion. I used your work around to transfer the auto generated number to the primary key. I applied the formula as a column formula. Then I used a form to populate the data, but the form data was added at row 51, after the auto generated number column stopped generating numbers.

I'm sure this is super simple but myself and a colleague could not figure it out. I have some very simple data I need graphed for a project: Not Started, In Progress, Complete and then % Complete using the total. The pie chart for the Not Started etc. comes out correct: But when I ask it to graph just % complete, it does…
Hello, I am working on a training log for our company. I am trying to get the status color to turn green if training is completed, yellow if it is due in the future, and red if it is incomplete. I keep getting an incorrect argument. I had it working correctly when I was just doing red and green, but I really need that go…
