Auto-assigned document ID number. - ok2me - 05-14-2010

As documents are added, I'd like to be able to auto-assign each one a unique 6 or 7 digit ID reference number. This reference number would not change over time as the document is revised.

The reference number would be used inside of a document to refer to other documents. For example, a standard on product testing could reference other applicable test specifications by their reference numbers. Over time, commonly used documents would become known in the organization by their reference numbers as well as their title/subject matter.

It would also enable the specification of a document within a URL (by its reference number). The URL could then be emailed to other users. When the recipient clicks on the link the current version of that document would be accessed. This assumes of course, that the recipient has explicit or "guest" access rights to that document.
