Auto Number Fields

I have created 4 different record types for a custom object, each record type has it own layout. I then created 4 auto number fields and put one on each layout, each auto number field creates a slightly different formated number. What i am trying to achieve is that each record type has its own autonumber. However, when you create a record for a certain record type it also increases the other autonumber fields for the other record types.


How can i go about this so that it only increases the autonumber for the certain record type?
