The majority of the transactions are issues and receipts. W     e are a
process company that uses container control. Yes this is a manufactured item
and about the third level in the bill of material. 

Please keep the ideas coming. 

My main question is "has anybody expanded this field?"

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?

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?

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.

Best regards,

Sally
