I am looking for a way to easily get Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 to automatically generate and display on opportunity records a simple opportunity ID. I know the system automatically generates the "opportunityid" field in the database, but that is a complicated string of characters, whereas I am looking for something more straightforward such as "OPP-1", "OPP-2", and so on.

I have been struggling to come up with a creative solution to this dilemma. Any thoughts?

The Auto-Numbering Extension appears to be exactly what I need; however, the blog appears interesting as well as it seems that it allows me to do it manually in case there is ever need to. Thanks for your help!
