Updated: March 13, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Number sequences are used throughout Microsoft Dynamics AX to allocate ID numbers or identifiers for entities. Before you can assign a number sequence to a Human resources reference, you must set up number sequences codes in the Number sequences list page. For more information, see Set up number sequences.

Some Human resources entities, such as positions, discussions, personnel numbers, and applicants, are shared across legal entities. For example, the number sequence code ABC-001 is assigned to the Personnel number reference. The first three new workers that are hired in Legal entity A have personnel numbers ABC-001, ABC-002, and ABC-003. When two new workers are hired in Legal entity B, they will have personnel numbers ABC-004 and ABC-005.

Complete this procedure to assign number sequences to shared Human resources entities.

  1. Click Human resources > Setup > Parameters > Human resources shared parameters.

  2. Click Number sequences.

  3. In the Number sequence code field, select a number sequence code for each reference.

NoteNote

If a number sequence that you need is not listed, use the Number sequences form to create it.

Some Human resources entities, such as applications, absence registrations, courses, agendas, events, and case numbers are not shared across legal entities, but are specific to one legal entity. For example, the number sequence code ABC-001 is assigned to the Course ID reference for Legal entity A. The first three courses that are created in Legal entity A have course IDs ABC-001, ABC-002, and ABC-003. The number sequence code ABC-001 is also assigned to the Course ID reference for Legal entity B. The first three courses that are created in Legal Entity B have course IDs ABC-001, ABC-002, and ABC-003.

  1. Log on to the legal entity to set up number sequences for.

  2. Click Human resources > Setup > Parameters > Human resources parameters.

  3. Click Number sequences.

  4. In the Number sequence code field, select a number sequence code for each reference.

    NoteNote

    If a number sequence that you need is not listed, use the Number sequences form to create it.

  5. Repeat this procedure for each legal entity.
