Automatic Number Generation
In cairs.net, Automatic Number Setup has
been simplified. To update an automatic
number setup record, do the following:
Navigate to System Admin > System
Settings > Auto Number Setup
Click “Show All”
Open the Auto Number Setup record that you
would like to change.
Select Standard and Incrementing mask parts
from the ribbon.
Note: You can only have one Incrementing element. If an Incrementing element has been added,
the “Add Incrementing Mask Part” group will be disabled.
As you are setting up an auto number, the
Mask Elements show each part of the mask that you have added. You can delete elements and move them up and
down within the mask from the Mask Elements list.
The Example will show an example of what the
next automatic number generated might be.
In the Mask Properties, the following
properties can be set:
This field is edited only through the ribbon and the Mask Elements pane.
If checked, the related area in cairs.net will default the field that is
numbered to use an automatic number.
Enabled has no effect on numbers that are generated by services running
on the server such as CES.
Reset Increment Value: Determines what the
first number will be in an incrementing mask part when it resets.
Use Fiscal Year: When checked, a Date Part that is added that
is a year will reset at the fiscal year boundary for Official Accounts as
defined in Accounting > Official Accounting > Official Accounts > Manage
Billing Cycle Plan (action).
If a mask is not valid, the Example will
show an error message telling you what the problem is, and the system will not
allow you to save the record.
