RM v12 disable reusing barcode (stock codes)

Hi Guys,


I want to get rid of all the stock barcodes less than 1000, so minimum length of barcodes is 4 digits. But when i do this and want to create a new stock item and let RM allocate the stock barcode it reuses the lowest availble number. i know when printing the barcode the leading zeroes are displayed but they dont appear anywhere else. I need the minimum of 4 digits for completing a unique item link to webstore inventory. So the question is can the reusing of old numbers be disabled or can i set the data field to be minium 4 digits?

Hi @MB


Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find it a wealth of helpful information


Unfortunately, there is no feature within RetailManager to disable the reusing of old barcodes or to specify when the automatic numbering system begins. This is due to how the program works. If you were wanting to follow a specific numbering convention within the barcode number, you would have to key these in manually.
