Number Series - Projects

This page describes the Number Series - Projects setting in the Job Costing module.


Each new Project that you enter will be given a unique identifying number (the Project Code), based on a sequential series.

You can have more than one sequential number series running at the same time, or at different times. For example, you may want to use different sequences to represent different departments or branches, or you may want to use different sequences to represent different fiscal or calendar years.

The Number Series - Projects setting allows you to take advantage of this feature. Here you can define the number sequences that you would like to use with Projects.

To open the Number Series - Projects setting, ensure you are in the Job Costing module and double-click (Windows/macOS) or tap (iOS/Android) 'Number Series - Projects' in the 'Settings' list. The following window will appear:

Enter each new Number Series on the first blank line. The sequences that you enter should not overlap. The Comment will be shown in the 'Paste Special' list, so enter some text that will help you choose a number from the correct sequence. The N/L field common to all Number Series settings is not used with Projects.

When the setting is complete, click the [Save] button (Windows/macOS) or tap √ (iOS/Android) in the Button Bar to save the changes. To close the window without saving changes, click the close box (Windows/macOS) or tap < (iOS/Android).

When you enter a new Project, the next number in the first valid Number Series entered to this setting will be used as a default. If necessary, you can change to the next number in any other Number Series using 'Paste Special'.

If you leave the setting empty, Project Codes will start at 1 and continue consecutively. If you want to start from another number, simply specify it in a new Project before saving.
