Code example to generate custom Project Nr.

 

ad_proc -public im_custom_next_project_nr {

    {-nr_digits {}}
    {-date_format {}}

    Project_nr should look like: cccc-xxxxx with the first 4 digits being
    the customer code and the second 4 digits is the current project_nr

    Returns "" if there was an error calculating the number.
