Creating an Invoice number using a script?

Post

Hi All, I'm trying to figure out how to auto generate an invoice number at the time an invoice is printed rather than using the serial number auto formula that generates a number when the record is created.

 

I have a data entry layout setup where we can fill in and tweak information as it comes in. It may take a month before we are ready to print out an invoice for a given group of records. We need the invoice numbers to be in order when we request to have them printed rather then when the record is created.

 

Is there a way to add a button with a script to our invoice layout so that when we go to print a selected invoice we can push a button and generate a number?

 

Thanks in advance for your help,

 

Bob
