Creating a new record through separate layout

Hello everyone,


I have set up a button in my estimates table that allows me to print an invoice for our clients (separate from printing the original estimate).


Everything is pretty straight forward except I'm looking for a way to populate an invoice number upon clicking the "Print Invoice" button. I would then like the invoice number to populate onto the printed invoice (this part should be easy).


The part that I am really stuck on is having the "Print invoice" button do a secondary function of creating the invoice number.


Any tips?
