a. Create a field: i.e. "ProjectNumber"
b. Query Save: @Command*[ToolsRunMacro];"Number"

5. Create an Agent: (Number)
Sub Initialize
     Dim Ses As New notessession
     Dim ws As New notesuiworkspace
     Dim db As notesdatabase
     Dim doc As notesdocument
     Dim source As notesuidocument
     Dim doccreate As notesdocument
     Dim view As notesview
     Set db =Ses.currentdatabase
     Set source = ws.currentdocument
     Set view = db.getView("(Numbering)")
     Set doc = view.getfirstdocument
     Set doccreate = source.document
     Dim x As Variant
     Dim y As Variant
     x =doc.ProjectNumber(0)
     y= x+1
     Dim username As String
     username = Ses.EffectiveUserName
     If Source.IsNewDoc Then
          doccreate.ProjectNumber= y
          doc.ProjectNumber = y                   
          Call doc.Save( True, True )
