How to format autonum numbers to add several 0 before depending if they are one, two or three diggits.
Posted on 2014-11-26
I am looking for a way to format auto numbers, so that they are always the same # of digits. Here is why: the first part of the number is supposed to be the date in a certain format, which works great, and the second part should be an auto-number which also works ok, but not how I need it. So how can I make this number: 201411261 look like this: 20141126001 as if it would always be a three digit number, (there is no case that the autonumber would ever be more than 3 digits)?
Thanks for your help
