Can we put the reference number automatically?

on 3/21/14, 2:12 AM 878 views

In our company, we have to put a reference number when creating quotations. Generally this reference number will be previous ref number +1(eg: XYZ00890,XYZ00891,XYZ00892....) . Now we are entering that by manually. How to make this automatically? Is it possible?

you can use sequence for automatic ref number to set sequence go Settings >> Technical >> Sequences & Identifiers >> Sequences. Set sequence.


I created a sequence with a prefix and a suffix. But still i didn't find how to apply this when creating quotations.
