AutoGeneration of Invoice Number

Hello everyone, i am new to filemaker. Recently, i am working on the invoice database.

The invoice number is in the following format, T1234-AA01-I01


where T1234 is the combination of T and C1234(client's number).

AA is the type of invoice, there are 4 of them AA, BB, CC, DD and the 2 digits are the type number.

The final symbol is Invoice number "I" and the 2 digits are the invoice number.


The combination of all the segments are the final invoice number we would like to generated.


i think it is not possible to auto-generate the number as the type really depends on the user selection.


For the first part, T1234. It could be generated by "T"& filter(client's number ; "0123456789")

For the second part, it is selected by the user.


My question is for the third part, how could it be automatically generated with respect to the same client.


For example, client A with client's number C1234 could have several invoice number, T1234-AA01-I01, T1234-AA01-I02, T1234-AA02-I01,



i am using filemaker 15.
