We had a similar situation, and resolved it with a couple of steps.  We
lowered our history paramater to 365 days, which eliminated surpassing the
99,999 sequence number problem.  Each month, the older records are "purged"
to the YTH file.  Instead of writing this file off to tape (as is
suggested), we just leave everything in that file.  In the rare occurance
we need to pull history that is older than one year (we are a food
manufacturer, so it happens!), we use a query tool over the YTH file to
access the information.  (Overlapping sequence numbers isn't a problem in
YTH, as you can sort the records pretty accurately with the date/time
fields.)  This has also considerably speeded up response time in many
applications, as our ITH file is very large.

Hope this helps!

We are facing a problem with ITH Seq# field. Some of high
transaction items' ITH seq# value has reached greater than
99,999 and the system is creating transactions with zero
seq#. We have to keep 3 years of history and these items
have reached the limit in less than 3 years.

Has anybody came across this problem?
