Getting copy number

Added by shreikant kv about 9 years ago

When I say \onecopy{100}{test material} I get 100 copies of "test material". I would like to use
the counter which runs from 1 to 100 inside "test material". May I know the name of this counter?

This is the "student number": \AMCid@etud.

How can use \AMCid@etud? If I try to print it, I just get "undefined control sequence".

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\serialnum}{\AMCid@etud}
\makeatother

%Usage:

Your serial number is \serialnum

I'm sorry for being particularly obtuse. However, I'm having difficulty using your suggestion. I modified a sample file (attached) the way I thought it needed to go, but I get errors. I get "Missing number, treated as zero", 10 times (10 exams are specified). Any help to tell me what I am doing wrong?

I need this number in 3 digit large format, because of a requirement of the testing center.

Thanks,
S.M.

Try with

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\serialnum}{\the\AMCid@etud}
\makeatother

(insert \the before \AMCid@etud). \AMCid@etud is a counter.
