I was wondering if anyone has gone through the process of resetting first free numbers? If so, I was wondering if someone could tell me if Baan should seek out and find the next available number in a given series, or if it just adds one to the number identified in the "First Free Number" field.
My problem is that we have many production orders that show as being available, but when I reset the "First Free Number" for this "Series," it tells me that it is "Unable to retreive first free number. Try again?" I am trying to understand how the first free number functionality works as it pertains to the production orders.
I guess I was under the impression that Baan seeked out the next 'available' number. For example, if a series was defined for number "20," and "Series" "20" had numbers "200010" and "200400" available, and I reset the "First Free Number" in this series back to "1," it would find number "200010" and then "200400."
But, in my tests, even when I have available numbers to use, it comes back and tells me that it is unable to retreive first free number. Is this standard functionality or is this a bug?
Thanks for the help,
