I have a table with values could be like ex: A00300. I want to get the max of this field, and add 1 to it to get next maximum value for inserting a new record.

like : A00300 + 1 = A00301( my expected value).

    Use javascript and split the value to characters and numeric. Add the new value to numeric and concatenate this the character value , then populate into the table.

    var a = 'A00';
    var n = 300;
    n = n+1;
    var result = a+n; // value = A00301
