In checking the ITH file, we have a new item that processes 32,000 transactions a month. We are in trouble this month when we went over the 99999 limit. What I am planning on doing is creating a new item number "X", changing the item number for old item in the ith file to the "X" number for Jan-Mar. Then using a re-sequence program to re-sequence the old number for the April records so we can close and buy some time. Long range, I can only think of expanding the sequence field. Has anyone done this? Or any better suggestions?

You have had some very good advice regarding this but please remember, if you are going to write a program to resequence your ITH file (Tom Sult's reply), you also need to consider updating the IIM file.
We have software that will archive the ITH (not to YTH) and will resequence records. Please contact me offline if you are interested.
