hi all,

i need to create an automatic call reference. i though it would work using
the date as ccyymmdd and by adding a '001', '002', etc to the end.

now, i know how to format the date but how would i increment the 001, 002 at
the end... ? i understand that i would have to check back to the database to
check the last one used. but how... ?

alternatively is to just generate a random number, check it against the
database to see if it's not already used. if not use it. if its used
already, just create another one... ?


do you guys have any laternative suggestions ?
