is there a way to use sequential letters in stead of numbers for part numbers in the serial numbers.
Hi Ben, the serial number can be from a list, so you could type in a list of sequential letters. I'm curious though, what do your part numbers look like if you need to use sequential letters rather than numbers?
yeah i saw that i would be possible to use a list but i just wondered if it was possible to do it automatically. I suppose that the list would be the best way anyway as the project I'm working on need item numbers to have a fixed 4 digit prefix (of numbers i.e. 1234) then use a range of letters (1234ABC). The letters have a sequence to them but miss out I and O (could be confused with one and zero), and they have split in to assy numbers beginning with an A (i.e 1234AB) and part numbers going from 1234B to 1234Z and then 1234BA to 1234BZ. confused? i am.
Hi Ben, yes that does look confusing! I think out of the box, the list option is probably the best way to go. However, if you are going to have projects and parts which need to follow some sort of intelligent numbering system, then you may want look at having a addin developed to handle complex numbering.
