I cant believe that AR does not suggest the next customer ID , Supplier ID , item ID number , when you are entering a new customer ID. It would be so easy for the software to show the last few ID numbers that were entered in each category and save me having to look up what is the next free number to use. Currently I have a list on the back of my workbook , where I allocate a Customer ID , Supplier ID and Item ID number. This should happen automatically like in the Bills generation fields where it will auto generate a number or let you type a self generated a code and obviously check to make sure you are not creating duplicates.
I have imported 12000 customers and about that many Items into my database and I can't scroll through them all to find the next available numbers - please developers get on to this .
I can understand why it may not be easy, as many people dont use straight numeric numbers often using an alpha prefix, but if you could at least show the last few entires in each window it would make it so much easier.
