  • SharePoint can do so much more than replicating a (stupid) file share based storage. Should the numbers match with the file name/subject? Your screenshot has no 001 – Danny '365CSI' Engelman Jan 9 '16 at 9:18
  • I'm not sure what you mean by "match with the filename / subject". The P100-001 etc will be a column associated with the document – Matt Saunders Jan 9 '16 at 9:33
  • So your screenshot is wrong? .. it does not show 001. Is Quality Records always 005? – Danny '365CSI' Engelman Jan 9 '16 at 9:41
  • The screenshot is an example of the problem we have with people missing numbers, hence moving it SharePoint to control it, no Quality Records will not always be 005, the title will always be different The Code and document title will be separate pieces of information in SharePoint – Matt Saunders Jan 9 '16 at 9:48
  • I still don't understand the problem. If these screenshot files had been uploaded to SharePoint they would be numbered up to P100-008. What defines a 'missing' document then? – Danny '365CSI' Engelman Jan 9 '16 at 11:15
