Can we skip records when creating autonumbers!!!!!!!

Can we skip records when creating an auto number on a record if it has specific picklist values????


Suppose i have 5 picklist values...I need to generate autonumber for only some records which have 3 picklist values. For remaining 2 picklist values it should not generate autonumbers on it.


Do we need to do any apex coding or can it be done through configuration.




With standard functionality u cant do this.

You need to write a trigger with event before insert or after insert.




How can we skip even with trigger. I am not that much into apex coding.

Can u explain me in brief,how to skip auto numbers.
