I have a Web Application in Asp.Net With My Sql Server 2008 .

Question: I want to Generate Unique Id Like Current Year Current Month Current Date With 0000 -9999 Number. Example 201310260001
it should be autoincrement .. any solution will be appreciate and this will be done with Store Procedure. When user submit form then that procedure will check the last id and increment with one 201310260002

Thanks In Advance

Two options

1. Use IDENTITY(1,1) on the primary key column in the table that will store the data? See Scope_Identity in SQL Server documentation.

2. Use SQL Server Sequence Class if your version of SQL Server supports it.

Also you can use unique identifier ,but be noted this is not optimize ever! as it creates a unique value in all the world so it is larg!
CREATE TABLE myTable (ColumnA uniqueidentifier DEFAULT NEWSEQUENTIALID()) 

and for insertion:
insert into myTable(ColumnA) values(NEWID())

i guess the following code will fulfill your requirement. It will generate and increase id based on date and store it to table named #MyTable. Please check and test the code. I tested and found ok with your requirement

create table #MyTable(Id bigint, Name varchar(100));

create proc [dbo].[InsertMaxValue]
	declare @IdGenByCurrentDate bigint = (select cast(year(getdate()) as varchar) + cast(month(getdate()) as varchar) + + cast(day(getdate()) as varchar));
	declare @LastId bigint = (select max(id) from #MyTable);
	declare @NewId bigint = cast(@IdGenByCurrentDate as varchar(100)) + '0001';

	if @LastId is not null	
		declare @LastIdGenByCurrentDate bigint = substring(cast(@LastId as varchar(100)), 1, len(@IdGenByCurrentDate));

		if @IdGenByCurrentDate = @LastIdGenByCurrentDate		
			set @NewId = @LastId + 1;			
	insert into #Mytable(Id,Name) values (@NewId, cast(getdate() as varchar(111)));

exec InsertMaxValue

select * from #MyTable

What if two application instances call this stored procedure at exactly the same time? Both will select the same MAX(id) and then generate a duplicate NewId. A rare event but it could happen in this age of multiple processors. I prefer to use SQL Server's Built-In functionality to guarantee a unique integer.

I agree that auto increment number should be generated from database either auto identity or sequence number or auto generated guid. Otherwise concurrency issue might be there. Here just i implement the solution that ask for(based on datetime and new number sequence).
