  • Hi,

    It is possible but you won't be able to change the format of the existing auto numbering function in MS CRM 2011.

    What you will need to do is to write a custom plug-in that generates an auto number in the format you require.

    You should be able to easily find sample code for such a plugin using an online google/bing search.
