Do you use this same item at multiple facilities? If so, would it be possible to use one item number at one facility, and another at the other? When we do something like this, we use a very simple variation (like adding an "A" to the end of the first item number), so it's easy to recognize the item. We also give them a common drawing/formula number, which makes searches for total usage, etc., easier. Another possibility (and I guess I'm making an assumption that this is a material you're using in manufacturing, not something you're selling) would be to use one item number in one group of bill of materials, and a second item in another group. 32,000 transactions for one item in one month is a huge amount. What kind of transactions are these?

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? -----Original Message----- From: bpcs-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:bpcs-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Sally Bosman Sent: Thursday, April 17, 2003 3:26 AM To: SSA's BPCS ERP System Subject: Re: ITH Seq# > 99,999 Hi, 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.
