The Number field displays the Vendor Number.
Keystroke uses the Vendor Number to identify Vendors. Vendor Numbers cannot be changed on existing Vendor records.
The Vendor Number is the primary Indexed field that uniquely identifies each Vendor database record and may be used to enter Vendors on transactions and to sort Vendors in Lookup Lists and on Reports. The Vendor Number has no specific meaning other than it is the actual Record Number that Keystroke uses to keep track of each Vendor.
As new Vendor records are added, Keystroke automatically assigns the Vendor Number according to the Next Number counter setting located in the Database Manager Setup Menu. The next available Vendor Number may be changed using the Next Number function. Care should taken when resetting the Next Number. Do not to specify a number lower than the highest Vendor Number already used because no two Vendor records may have the same Vendor Number.
Maximum Vendor Number: 999,999,999 (~ 1 Billion)
Maximum Vendor Records: 999,999,999 (~ 1 Billion)
