Cannot create two auto number fields in one entity

Dec 19, 2011 at 1:31 PM

Hi All,

Im hoping someone could lend me a hand, I downloaded and installed the auto numbering solution and it works great (thanks alot).

However a problem Im currently experiecing is that I cannot seems to have two auto numbered fields in one entity, only one works even though I do setup auto numbering on the two fields they just dont seems to want to work. When I disable the working field the one that was not auto numbering works and visa versa which leads me to think that maybe two fields in one entity is not supported in this solution.

Im hoping someone could help me out.

 

Thanks,

Hey There.

The problem is that the logic implemented in the code just applies to one unique number. When you try to generate two numbers in the same time, the logic will not work.

You can download the sourcecode and modify it to suit your needs.

For instance, you could modify the mutex bit in the code and create two seperate configuration records for the same entity. Maybe that will work for your scenario.

Cheers,
