What broke and how can I fix it, and put something in place to keep it from happening time and time again?. Thanks

I have a form library that I built using an InfoPath form (2007). It has the following data connections for submitting a form.

Name: Main Submit
Type: Submit Data
File Name (experssion): max(@ID) + 1
Allow overwrite if form exists: no

Name: RetrieveIDs
Type: Retrieve Data
Data source type: Secondary data connection

If the form is saved before the submit button is clicked (which disappears after the first submit), I recieve this error

"InfoPath cannot submit the form.
Some rules were not applied.
InfoPath cannot submit the form.
The form was not submitted because a form named 509.xml already exists in the document library at http://qualitysystem/events/Change Request. Please contact the provider of the form"

Yet I'm telling it to fetch the id and add one??, thanks again for any insight.
