This topic has not been fully updated for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2.

You can assign specific number sequences to invoices and packing slips that are generated in the Accounts receivable, Accounts payable, Inventory management, and Project modules. You also can specify individual number sequences for different users and user groups, customer and vendor groups, or warehouses. The sequence numbers are printed on the Invoice register and the Packing slip registration journal reports.

You can also number invoices and packing slips manually. When you enter document numbers manually, you can turn on number verification for invoices and packing slips in Accounts receivable to ensure that the numbers are unique. To use number sequences for invoices and packing slips, you must select the Invoice and the Packing slip numbering by user or user groups. You must specify the module, customer or vendor group, and document type for which the number sequences will be used.
