If you do this, those parts can't be ordered or checked against inventory when looking parts up from catalogs. Generating your own part numbers is ill advised.Auto Repair Coach wrote:Ric,
Thanks for that, I now understand.
But why enter the same part number four times to represent four different parts? That seems to be were the issue starts.
My method would be to add another digit to the number. Looking at your example BELT would be G7440, lamp - W7440.....[Second thought BELT would be B7440, lamp L7440]
