Serials Numbers

Question asked by Jason_Farnsworth on May 24, 2013

I have a need to have two types of serial numbers a main number and then a revision of a main number. Example




8373 All Main Numbers set it up as a serial number and it all works great.


However, If I make two revisions of lets say 8371 I would like them two read 8371.1 and 8371.2 so that I know the file has the same root information but there is some details that have changed within a few of the fields of both revisions.


To create the revision I duplicate the original record, and then assign a new number, When I duplicate a record with the serial number function active it keeps on ticking up each time I create a record therefore when I go back to get a main number it is off by the number of revisions I just did.


Is there any way to reset the serial number so if I were to put a couple in between the main number would not get off?


Any thoughts or insight would be great.
