Did Neil’s suggestion help you?
I think that he’s right. Assuming that you’ve already checked that the new number series is actually being used. Did you check this in the number series lines?
But I think it’s more a matter how NAV sorts it’s document number (code) fields. If you are using SQL Server, and not the so-called native database (available with all version before 2009), then the numbering fields are string/text fields, where the numbers are stored alphabetically. Many companies include letters to help identify which kind of document number it is. A posted deposit could be ‘PD-1000’. This means it will sort a list with the number ‘10000’ like this:
My suggestion to how to avoid this “behavior” is to change your default page views to be order by the actual posting date, instead of the document no. Which version of NAV are you running? In the newer version this can be changed both by the user or from the page designer.
This way of sorting is everywhere in Navision.
So the best is always to start with a series that covers a bit more than the “old system” = use one more digit. And start with i.e. ‘00001’ instead of just ‘1’, then it sorts fine, at least until ‘99999’. It also works fine with ‘10000’.
