    Auto Tracking Number from select cells

    Hi All,

    I have a formula I am using to try create an auto Tacking Number system

    Formula: copy to clipboard
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.


    I want the number to appear as the data is logged into "C5"

    The end product I am looking for will be "TS-July14-001", Where "M5" is the given month, "N2" is 2014 so I used the right formula to get 14

    The last bit is where I am having problems, I would like the last number "001" to have a fill series effect.

    Ultimately if this is possible i would then like the fill series to reset to 001 when the month in "M5" changes.

    Hope this makes sense, Can provide an example workbook if needed

    Regards,
    Simon

    hi simon. always good to upload a sample excel file with desired results. maybe:
    =IF(C5>0,CONCATENATE("TS-",M5,RIGHT(N5,2),"-",TEXT(COUNTIFS(M$5:M5,M5,N$5:N5,N5),"000")),"")
