Dynamics ax updating number sequence
However, continuous number sequences can adversely affect system response times because the system must request a number from the database every time that a new document or record is created.
If you use a non-continuous number sequence, you can enable Preallocation on the Performance Fast Tab of the Number sequences form.
To use the number sequence for a form in Microsoft Dynamics AX or in Enterprise Portal, you will typically add code to the data source for the form or data set.
You can also retrieve a number sequence value directly in code.
When you specify a quantity of numbers to preallocate, the system selects those numbers and stores them in memory.
The wizard generates number sequences for all references in all organizations for which number sequences are not yet defined.Number sequences are used to generate readable, unique identifiers for master data records and transaction records that require identifiers.A master data record or transaction record that requires an identifier is referred to as a reference.On this example, we are going to create a new number sequence for customer group.Important: As we can see on Application Explorer, Number Seq Module Customer belongs to Application Suite model, make sure the model which you are using for development extends this model.
