Dispatch - Set variable from serial number

I cannot figure out how to assign a serial number to a variable inside a dispatch script. I want the system to give me the next serial number. I have no problem doing this from the tasks.


Here is what I am trying to accomplish:


I have users that want to be able to create "Temp" or "Play" files inside the vault before assigning a serial number. They do this as they are doing concept work. That way they don't run up the serial numbers for parts that are not going to be used.  I figured ok fine, I'll just write a script to get the next serial number and rename the file to the new serial number. Wrong. That's where I am stuck. I can't find anything in the variable section to get from serial number.
