I am trying to generate a unique identifier for all new items created in a list.


I understand that each new item does receive a Unique SharePoint generated ID.


I would like to be able to customize this field if needed ie:


2015 - 1


I've looked at the post on creating an auto-increment number before saving & received the following error when testing script:




Failed eval expression:  Error Occurred on evaluating expression var camlQuery

='<View><Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name="ItemID" Ascending="FALSE"/></OrderBy></Query></View>';

RefenceError camlQuery is undefined


Many Thanks
