I have tried to start a new invoice sequence for year 2018 by manually entering the first invoice number 10000101.
Unfortunately when I try to issue 2nd invoice it doesnot follow the new sequence but goes back to the last invoicing which was 20170348.
Can you please advise what could be the problem; I was doing this every year and was working fine. Our version is Manager 17.11.41
I used simple number for invoice number but after the advent of GST I started Using Alphanumeric
i.e up to june I used number from 1-1580 but from July I starded Using in the format FP/001 onwards
Now I have to manually enter the invoice numbers . hence frequent errors… can u suggest a wayto get around this problem… Thanks & Regards
Manager only supports numbers at present for automatic numbering of invoices.
if you want to avoid errors use only numbers for your invoices. if you are entering it manually then it is the user responsibility to avoid errors.
Updated to V18.7.97 , still the same issue, tell me If at some point if i start entered manually invoice number ,
and entered incorrect sequence what that do , if later continued with automatic numbering ?
or finally is there a way to reset it ?
thanks for your prompt reply,
I have understood what mistake was done, and it was not with changing date format as I assumed, rather entering a purchase number (order number) in the invoice numbering box , so the PO # was B201806-05073 thus it generated invoice number 201806050731158 , and then it continued with
201806050731160 & 201806050731161 , and so on
Only then I started to continue manual sequencing using the last 4 digits , and continued , then it started getting messy
