You can apply a unique number to one document or to a whole set of documents.  You can also add alphanumeric prefix or suffix which might include text such as a set number, case number, firm name or date. The prefix and suffix can make it easier to recognize the central subject matter of the files.  You can start the numbering at any point and, when processing more than one document, continue the numbering across the documents.
