Please use below code:

Sub Initialize

Dim s As New notessession

Dim doc1 As notesdocument

Set doc1 = s.documentContext

If(doc1.ISNEWNOTE) Then

Dim view1 As notesview

Dim db1 As notesdatabase

Set db1 = s.currentDatabase

Set view1 = db1.getView("SequenceNo") 'View Name and it should be in Descending order

Dim doc2 As notesdocument

Set doc2 = view1.getFirstDocument

Dim incrementNumber As Integer

incrementNumber = Cint(doc2.SequenceNo(0)) + 1

doc1.Contactlog = "CN"+Cstr(incrementNumber)

'doc1.LoggedBy=""

doc2.SequenceNo = Cstr(incrementNumber)

Call doc2.save(False, True) 

End If
 

End Sub

or make use of this.....
In the QuerySave event of the form, get the highest numbered existing document and set the number on the document being saved:
 

dim sess as new NotesSession

dim db as NotesDocument

dim ws as new NotesUIWorkspace

dim uidoc as NotesUIDocument

dim doc as NotesDocument

dim viewLU as NotesView

dim docLU as NotesDocument

dim docno as Long
 

set db = sess.CurrentDatabase

set uidoc = ws.CurrentDocument

set doc = uidoc.Document

set viewLU = db.GetView("ByNumberView")

set docLU = viewLU.GetFirstDocument

if docLU is Nothing Then

'*** No documents in view; this one is #1

call doc.ReplaceItemValue("DocNumber", 1)

else

'*** Get the current highest number

docno = docLU.GetItemValue("DocNumber")(0)

docno = docno + 1

call doc.ReplaceItemValue("DocNumber", docno)

end if

call uidoc.Refresh

You created the view that's used by the code?

Also, try debugging the code and check in which line it is giving error.
Make sure the view exists.

The view is created as above, for the first example i get the variable not set immediately in the variable declaration, in the second example the code can not be compiled because there is a code error. in the variable declaration. db you have declared as a document and you set a database in the declaration, ??
can it be there the error. thanks

Incremental numbering is very difficult to do properly,
especially under the following conditions.
1) Multiple users working simultaneously
2) multiple servers

Preferable options are to use a random ID via Unique or via the Doc ID.


I hope this helps !

Try below code....
Sub Initialize

Dim s As New notessession

dim ws as new notesuiworkspace

dim uidoc as notesuidocument

set uidoc=ws.currentdocument

Dim doc1 As notesdocument

Set doc1 = uidoc.document 's.documentContext

'If(doc1.ISNEWNOTE) Then

if uidoc.isnewdoc then

Dim view1 As notesview

Dim db1 As notesdatabase

Set db1 = s.currentDatabase

Set view1 = db1.getView("SequenceNo") 'View Name and it should be in Descending order

Dim doc2 As notesdocument

Set doc2 = view1.getFirstDocument

Dim incrementNumber As Integer

if not doc2 is nothing then

incrementNumber = Cint(doc2.SequenceNo(0)) + 1 'SequenceNo is the field name on the form which stores the Sequence no.,.

'doc1.Contactlog = Cstr(incrementNumber)

'doc1.LoggedBy=""

doc1.SequenceNo = Cstr(incrementNumber)

Call doc1.save(False, True) 

else

doc1.SequenceNo = "1" 'Cstr(incrementNumber)

Call doc1.save(False, True) 
 

end if

End If

 

End Sub

OK from your code i understand that you assume the field is text, well when is text the field than there comes the error variable not set, if i change the field to number than the error doesnt show up.i think im doing something wrong here.
i have the view called sequenceno (in descending order), i have a form with a field as text or number thats all i have, and i have your code in the initialize event in the form...
what i wanted is when i create the form the incremented number you have coded comes to the sequence field.

Sorry for that. I did not saw the INitialize event.
Place the below code in the QuerySAve event. We need to generate the sequence number when the document is saved. In this way, we have the correct sequence numbers.
As for SequenceNo  field, it can be a text.
Best of Luck
Dim s As New notessession

dim ws as new notesuiworkspace

dim uidoc as notesuidocument

set uidoc=ws.currentdocument

Dim doc1 As notesdocument

Set doc1 = uidoc.document 's.documentContext

'If(doc1.ISNEWNOTE) Then

if uidoc.isnewdoc then

Dim view1 As notesview

Dim db1 As notesdatabase

Set db1 = s.currentDatabase

Set view1 = db1.getView("SequenceNo") 'View Name and it should be in Descending order

Dim doc2 As notesdocument

Set doc2 = view1.getFirstDocument

Dim incrementNumber As Integer

if not doc2 is nothing then

incrementNumber = Cint(doc2.SequenceNo(0)) + 1 'SequenceNo is the field name on the form which stores the Sequence no.,.

'doc1.Contactlog = Cstr(incrementNumber)

'doc1.LoggedBy=""

doc1.SequenceNo = Cstr(incrementNumber)

Call doc1.save(False, True) 

else

doc1.SequenceNo = "1" 'Cstr(incrementNumber)

Call doc1.save(False, True) 

 

end if

End If
