Yanno Steve, I was afraid someone was going to tell me that. I think you are more than likely right, but I was trying to hold on to one last little hope that someone knew some trick that I missed. Thanks for you input.

It is not automatic, but better than what they did before, which was GUESS.... Without modifying mapics code, I don't know how you would do this.

Currently our users are maintaining a spreadsheet and are looking up the next number to be used. I have found a way to do it through User Exit program UMVCUM5R...sort of. I have to modify one parm in AMVA3PVR so that the new customer number will pass all the way back through to the display of the customer input screen. My director would like to find a way to do this without having to modify a MAPICS program otherwise there is really no use in using the User Exit program to begin with. Has anyone created an auto-generate capability without changing main programs? I saw one post make a brief reference to using a data area to store the numbers, but they did not say where in the program they are accessing this number when a user chooses to Add a New Customer. Any help/information would be appreciated. Thank you. Elonna Thompson Information Systems WILD Flavors, Inc.
