Hello,

Here is an idea for a solution that might work for you.

The other approach would be to get the value in that field from the last submission and increase it by one.
Here is how to make it work.
Please go to form's Advanced properties > More options > Form pieces and in Before Form section set Type to Custom and in the code area below put the following code:
$this->execPieceByName('ff_InitLib');
$db = JFactory::getDBO();//Get Database Object
$db->setQuery("SELECT value from #__facileforms_subrecords WHERE element = 7929 ORDER BY id DESC"); 
$tmp= $db->loadResult() + 1;
ff_setValue('FIELDNAME',$tmp);
NOTE: In the code above replace FIELDNAME with the Name of the field in your form. Also, replace 7929 with the element number of the field in your form where the integer should be displayed. You can get it by inspecting the element from the ID.

The other approach would be to write a query that would count the number of records for that specific form, but suggested above might be a better solution.

Let me know whether this solution is working for you.

Regards,

Mihaela
