Hii All Experts,
 First of all question tiltle is complecated to understand but i will try to explain my quetion properly.
I have sharepoint 2010. And i have one document library with item adding, item added item updating, item updated event. When i upload any document item adding and item added event call and code execute. after uploading when i update metadata(Custom columnss) , item updating , item updated event call. it works fine i wrote some code to generate Docnumber based on custom column.

Now when i open another documnet library and when i open document in word 2007 and when i click save as document to Another document library, item adding and item added event call, and then i can get documnet panel so when update some metada , again item adding and item added event call but not item updating event call. so i dont get docnumber.

I tried a lot for debug but no luck with execute item updating event. i dont know what to do?

So when user upload documnet than it works but when they save as documnet prolem with item updating event...

Hope you understand my question..

Thank you in advance

I have used item events also (only in MOSS), but I used the ItemUpdated and ItemAdded events.
Imho, those are better. You can do something like the piece of code below.
In this case, you edit the metadata after added or update, wiithout firing events and also without changing modified by and date.

DisableEventFiring();
try
{
   //do something with item (is a SPItem)
   item["column"] = ...;
   item.SystemUpdate(false);
}
finally
{
   EnableEventFiring();
}
