Use this wizard to automatically create number sequences. The wizard generates number sequences for all references in all organizations for which number sequences are not yet defined. You cannot use the wizard to generate number sequences for a subset of the areas or references that require number sequences.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

Button

Field

Description

OK

A green check mark indicates that no problems are detected with the format of the number sequence.

Area

The Microsoft Dynamics AX module or feature area where the number sequence is used.

Reference

The document type or record that uses the number sequence.

Number sequence code

Specify the identification code for the number sequence. A default value is specified, but you can modify it.

Smallest

Specify the lowest possible value that can be used when numbers are automatically generated for the number sequence. A default value is specified, but you can modify it.

Largest

Specify the highest possible value that can be used when numbers are automatically generated for the number sequence. A default value is specified, but you can modify it.

Continuous

Select this option to use a continuous number sequence. If a continuous number sequence is used, the next available number from the sequence is used when a transaction is entered. The system automatically verifies that no numbers from the sequence are lost. If a number is generated but the transaction fails, automatic cleanup makes that number available again.

Do not select this option if you must preallocate numbers for the selected number sequence.

Format

A preview of the format of the number sequence. A number sign (#) represents incrementing numbers. An ampersand (&) represents incrementing letters.

For scope segments, the wizard determines the format, based on the value of the short name field in the underlying tables.

Number of

The number of number sequences that are automatically generated for the module or feature area.
