Does anybody know how to sequentially number documents in notes? I already have a method which looks at a field on another database, however if two users access it at the same time it causes errors.  QXCOM and Senator have produced software that can provide the answer however I am having problems contacting them.  Please Help!

QXCOM does have a good product for doing sequential number generation, but you will not find it from QXCOM any longer.  It belongs to Computer Associates Inc. now.
Here is a link to the their site where you can download a 30 day trial of QXCOM Tools.

p.s. You didn't mention that you were trying to get hold of CAI, so I assumed you did not know that QXCOM was owned by them.  My apologies if this is old info.

You could also create you own sequential number generator by using an recieve agent that recieves all documents and assign an ID number this agent can only run on one server or you could add an unique identifier infront of the number for each server.
