I'm working on a solution that requires that I create a unique, incrementing project number that comprises built-in tasks (very similar to the template that comes Filemaker 13). My project is tied-in to a contact management solution with marketing tasks.
Can you give me an idea on how I could create a new project number field that increments up similar to a serial number field? I suppose I could use the serial number field itself, however I believe that may create problems in the future.
An additional feature that I'd like to implement is the ability to have the project number start with the current, year a dash ( - ) and then the unique project number starting from say 100.
Your help is much appreciated.
