How can I create row numbers in a collection?

I have a collection I am creating from a SharePoint list. I would like to add row numbers to it so I can reference each item in the collection individually. Any ideas?

@pwrappr1
Every SharePoint list includes an ID field by default. It is a unique row number you can reference individually. Does that work for you?

If you want to make a new column with a unique row number I suggest you check out this blog post by forum user Tim Leung: http://powerappsguide.com/blog/post/generating-row-numbers

Note: you may have to unhide the column to see it in your SharePoint List webpage but PowerApps will already be pulling this field in.

Hi @pwrappr01  I have a blog post on https://officepoweruser.com/how-to-make-a-gallery-control-automatically-scroll-in-powerapps/ that creates a row number. I think this will help you!
