I want to supress the leading zeros so my invoice numbers are significantly shorter - but another thread on this site revealed that they cannot be deleted - why not???
My suppliers and customers punch the entire number into their systems and they do not fit their field and create confusing references on their documentation....help!
"Leading Zeros in Invoice and Purchase Order and any other form generating application"
Thank you for your suggestions, we're always looking to improve workflow in AccountRight and would be happy to consider changing the way the automatic numbering system displays its information. Those who would like to see this added, please remember to add your votes to those already made.
I agree - and we should have the option of pre-fixing the autonumbering with letters - either by way of a custom field on the form or as part of the invoice number. We use AccountRight V19 and Liam advised that it is part of the AccountRight program. He also suggested I put it in the Ideas Exchange in the hope that in later versions it becomes adopted. It's great that other people are getting annoyed with the zeros. You don't mention what version you are using.
Please can every one vote for this so we can get some action!
Most programming languages and no doubt including the one AR is written in offer the ability to "Suppress Zeros", I'm struggling to believe that MYOB haven't enabled this.
It makes printed forms and screens look totally ugly.
It is perfectly do-able I'd say that someone just needs to spend the time to find out to do it.
Such a basic feature but yet makes the product look "cheap and nasty".
It seems that it has been mentioned in the general forum as well on a few occasions.
I too am amazed at this, not only to drop the leading zeroes but have the ability to put at the front of your invoice a default character field, such as SZAXXX (XXX being the invoice number)
I have voted for the change and urge others to do so as well
Yep, me too. I have just upgraded to MYOB from another (ad-hoc) accounting program which was heaps easier to edit stuff like this. All of our invoices to date have been 4-digit numbers, and now from MYOB we are getting all these zeros. So that we hardly recognise our own invoice numbers anymore.
Agreed and voted.
Wow 3 years on and we're still voting on this issue - clearly MYOB is listening....
No other accounting system has leading zero's showing. MYOB are miles behind the times here.
I do not see what the issue is with leading zeros as they can simply be ignored and myob knows what you mean.
