I have requirement to have an auto increment list in SharePoint 2013. But the requirement is a bit odd.

I have regions like APAC, EMEA, US, AMERICAS. I want to add an incremented value for each region like the below.

APAC0001 APAC0002 APAC0003 EMEA0001 EMEA0002 EMEA0003 US0001 US0002 US0003

I would like to have this without any programming. Is this possible?


  • Are regions maintained in separate list like master or its choice column ? Commented Jan 9, 2017 at 12:10

This should be possible using SharePoint Designer Workflow. You can create a List Workflow for this and trigger it on Item Added
