I know how to automatically assign numbers to a new point files using the $rownum function in the field calculator. However it does it from the top-left over and down like reading a book.
I could manually add the numbers myself that would be very time consuming in large point features.
What I'm wanting to do, as shown in the picture, is the top-left group of points to have them labeled 1 to 33 and the bottom-right group from 34 to the end.
Also, if I wanted to label the points vertically and start at the furthest top-left point and go down and then to the right, how would that be accomplished.
I'm sure that there is just some "code" I need to put into the field calculator but I do not know how.
