Unique Order Number

for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3

I take no credit for this. I just made a small change to add a dash in between the date and the other information. I also made a small so it works with V2.3 This contribution will create a unique Order Number, which is basically based on php's date() function. The order number will consist of: Month, Year, Hour, Minute, Second. Basically: date("mdY-His") = mmddyyyy-hhmmss (14 DIGITS) You could abreviate the Year to "y" which will give mmddyyhhmmss (12 DIGITS) ** These are unique numbers that cannot be duplicated since time always goes forward. In addition, based on the order number, you can tell exactly when the order was placed!**
