Numbers are assigned to various records in Inform ERP based on a controlled sequence, starting with 1. The Control Sequence Numbers page tracks the last system number used for the documents and transactions. You can change these numbers if it is necessary to skip a number or several numbers for any reason. The number following the figure that you enter will be used for the first transaction or document entered after you save your changes. Branch prefixes are not included in these control numbers.
Note: Control sequence numbers for sales orders and purchase orders allow you to enter 6 digits, the 7th character is an alphanumeric prefix which is designated in the Branch Master.
