Sequential name for each document in document library

  Asked By: Jamel    Date: May 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1684

I'm trying to create a Document management system for a client.
So I've created A Dcoument center with a few document library for them. Now,
They are requesting that for every MS word file that they create, the filename should be in sequence for example:

receipt1001.docx
receipt1002.docx
receipt1003.docx


Is this possible?

My first reaction would be to write a custom event handler for the document  library which will rename a file  when it is uploaded to the library.

However there appears to be a few posts out there that say that this is a lot easier said than done.
