    Hello. Suppose that "Invoice N. " is the field (text format) where you enter the invoice number:

     

    substr('Invoice N.', index('Invoice N.', "-") + 2, 2)

    Hi thank you. But I am actually looking for a method that can get the last two digits of the current year.

    ie 2018 => 18

    2019 => 19

     

    thank you for helping!

    Hi, I tried, but it keep saying: field not found:YY

    the following is my code

     

    let y := year('Invoice Date');
    let c := cnt(select Invoice where year('Invoice Date') = y);
    'Invoice No' := format(today(), “YY”) + "-" + format(c, "000")

     

    Could you help me to check?

    thank you

    Change the quotes for YY. See how they are different than the quotes in Fabio’s example.

    It worked!

    didn't see the differences before. Thank you very much!
