    The number after the dash needs to be increased in ascending order with each passing

    If somebody gives me a number like "12345-01" and asks me to increase number after dash in the ascending order Like "12345-02" and then "12345-03" so can I say "The number after the dash needs to be increased in ascending order with each passing day"?

    "In ascending order" does not say anything about the increment of one for each day.

    The number after the dash is to be increased by one with each passing day.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    "Increased" is "ascending."

    Every day, add one to the number after the dash.
