I am generating a custom record number based on three fields:
Type
SO#
WOID

The custom number is created using the following equation:
= [SO#] & Left([Type],1) & [WOID]

I first used this equation as the source for the WorkOrderNumber field and the custom number was not saved in the field in the table.

So I then created an unbound field to capture the custom number and then I set the WorkOrderNumber field equal to the unbound field.
Neither saves the the custom number and I would like to save this number since it should not change once assigned.

Thoughts?
