Access Function

>>Script Language and Platform: Access, VBA
Want to use this function in PHP/MySQL but new to PHP/MySQL. It works by taking the select member code description and the last assigned number and format as CON-00001 once the focus in lost after selecting the member description from dropdown list on the form.
