19 Customise module numbering
N.B. Once the prefix of a module has been changed, records previously recognised with the old numbering cannot be updated with the replacement.
A practical example of the usage of the record numbering is surely the management of the current year in progressive number of Quotes and/or Sales Order. The year must be insert in the field PREFIX. In this way, every new record will have the year in its numbering. After that you can choose to set the START SEQUENCE to 0.
