Autogenerate Issue number on original document and staying the same once emailed

I am having an issue where I need an autogenerated number though once I send it via email, its the next number in the sequence when the recipient opens the .pdf. For example I create the document and it shows as 1 though when the recipient opens the .pdf it now shows as 2. How can I resolve this issue?

The current java I have in the document is currently the following below:
var num = this.getField("Issue No."); num.value = Number(num.value)+1; num.defaultValue = num.value

I have provided the .pdf below. Please let me know if I can provide additional information to assist with my problem.
