I have developed a new module in openerp to enter the warranty details of the customer.Each entry made is displayed in the tree view.I want to set a unique no.in a predefined format to each of the entry.Now the entries are generated with numbers 25,26,29,25,28,26 like that.I want some recognizable number so that I can easily identify each entry when used in reference fields.How can this be done?Any ideas?

Create sequence for your object Go Settings >> Sequences & Identifiers >> Sequences

Add new file yourfilename_sequence.xml in your module pase this code ans change as per your requirement, add in __opnerp__.py update module

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <data noupdate="1">

        <!-- Sequences for sale.order -->
        <record id="seq_type_sale_order" model="ir.sequence.type">
            <field name="name">Sales Order</field>
            <field name="code">sale.order</field>

        <record id="seq_sale_order" model="ir.sequence">
            <field name="name">Sales Order</field>
            <field name="code">sale.order</field>
            <field name="prefix">SO</field>
            <field name="padding">3</field>
            <field name="company_id" eval="False"/>



Thanks for the suggesion.But how can the reference number sequence for the specified module be created in the Settings >> Sequences & Identifiers >> Sequences.There is nothing in the Settings >> Sequences & Identifiers >> Sequences that can identify that the sequence created is for the specific module.
