In the document preamble do


where examplecounter is the name of the counter you are defining.
If it is necessary to reset the counter per chapter append [chapter]  
to the newcounter command (aftr the closing }).

And include the following in the begin definition of EEXAMPLE


If you don't need to reference  example numbers with labels (\label)  
then you can use \stepcounter instead of \refstepcounter.
