Increment +1 all subsequent records upon new record creation

Hi, I have a sharepoint list datasource with a series of questions and an accompanying question ID number ('QID'. NB: This is a different column than the auto-assigned 'ID' column)

 

E.g

 

'QID''Question'

1

2

3

4

5

6

Question text

question text

question text

question text

question text

question text

etc

 

This is displayed to the user in a standard gallery, with some input controls alongside and a button to Patch in new questions to the list if needed.

 

Users may need to add a question which falls, for example, between 3 and 4 in the order. Currently, I'm attempting to write a function whereby the user would write their new question, and assign it QID: 3. This should then increment the QID for the current Q3 and all subsequent QIDs by +1, slotting the new q3 nicely into the order and moving everything after it up by 1 place. I am so far unable to come up with a working solution!

 

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks, but this doesn't answer my question I'm afraid. This just adds an item on the end of the list with the last ID# + 1.
