Adding auto-serial tweak to a duplicate record?

Post

I see the functionality already exists to create a duplicate record. Is there a simple way to have the duplicate record append a number to the auto-serial that is assigned?

 

For example, I would like a button to create a duplicate record of a record with serial 10001. The duplicate record should then be assigned a serial of 10001-1, the next one is 10001-2, etc.

 

Creating a brand new record should work as normal, the next one should just be 10002. If I go back and create another duplicate of 10001, the next one would auto-assign 10001-3. If I make my first duplicate of 10002, it should be 10002-1.

 

Hope this makes sense!

 

Thanks
