Filter to pull specific column data from last entry on SharePoint list

So I am trying to create my own userID system using the first 2 letters of the first name and last name and combine it with an increasing number that comes from a SharePoint column called "Record" that is set as a number column. I set the previous entry manually, but I'mhaving trouble getting powerapps to pull that from a large list of over 2,000 data row entries. Because it's so large, I assume I need the Filter function somewhere, and Last function to pull that number. I was planning on calling the previous Record number and having powerapps add 1 to that number, then adding the Right(Record,3) to the userID so that it would be something like NaGr123. 


Additionally, is there a way to keep if from counting all 0 values when I hit a number like 1,000? I'd rather not have something like NaGr000, if possible. Although that may display as NaGr, correct? Can it skip the 1,000 and go straight to 1,001 for every thousand?


For specifics:


List name: Visitor Import Test

Number column name: Record
