Would an acting president be listed among the numbered presidents?

As an example President Trump is the 45th president of the United States.

Let's assume by some bizarre set of circumstances like in the OP's TV show the Sec State becomes president for a day before Trump resumes the presidency.

Will the Sec State be listed as the 46th president of the United States who was succeeded by the 45th president of the US?
