InfoPath Auto Number For My Request Form RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am designing a Request form in InfoPath 2007.

    I am not using any External Datasoruce like SharePoint, Sql Server.. ect.

    And, I am using Email Submit.

    Here, Is it poosible to generate an Application numer for each application after submitting the form.

    That means, After submitting the form I need a Sequence number to track my application but i can not be a random number.

    I can do it if I am using SharePoint or any other external datasource.

    Can anyone tell me whether it is possible or not out of the box.

    If nothing is available, I am thinking to have a xml file where I can read and write sequence number as a reference. Its again forcing me to maintain another file in shared location where all users have access which may not proper way of achieving it.

  • Hi Pabhu,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    Would you please clarify your request more detailed? Where is the number you want to set? Is it in a field?

    Have a good day,

  • For my first leave request form the application number will be 0001, for the second leave request form the application number will be 0002 and for my 3rd leave request form the application number will be 0003 and so on.

    I want to display this number in my leave request form after submitting (or before submitting if possible). as a Label at top of the application form.
