View name titles - how to automatically number view bubbles?

Relatively new to the drafting/annotation side of SolidWorks. Currently using 2013.


Our company has a block for view titles, as shown in the attached JPG, but the numbering system doesn't currently work. (It was probably part of someone's abandoned pet project to update drafting standards). After much Googling, I managed to get the view name field to work. The Scale and Sheet Title already worked as well. My question is, is there a way to have the view number sequentially increase for each block instance, or tie to some property of the drawing views such that they're not all identical? I need view 1, 2, 3, 4...x; not view 2, 2, 2, 2,...,2.


Thanks for any help you can provide!
