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

 

8371

8372

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.

 

Thanks,
