Just have to vent…
Our parent company is requiring that we use their Customer ID system in E10. And their customer ID’s are a 7 digit “number” with leading zeros. Like
0001234 isn’t a number!!!
Almost as bad is another place I’ve worked had a part number system consisting of 2 digits, a dash, then 4 digits: Ex:
34-0123. Now I have no issue with that, but people would say,
“We’re out of part number ‘thirty four, dash one twenty three’…”
Or more often just
‘thirty four, one twenty three’
34-123 is not a part number!!!
And god help you if you need to pull these into excel. As it does you the “favor” of converting to numbers.
