When you click the "Save Invoice" or "Save To DB" button, Uniform Invoice Software generates a unique, sequential and progressive (increment) invoice / receipt number if the cell is left blank. This automatic numbering generator is based on a counter stored in the backend database. You can set the "Next Number", "Prefix" and "Numbers of Digits in ID" options on the "Database" tab of "Settings" window.
