Serial Numbers in v6.1 / v8


We are using Vantage 6.1 . We now wish to use serial numbers
(suppliers), for tracking goods. There are a couple of questions I
have I was wondering if anybody could answer. Primarily, we want to
suppliers serial numbers from receipt, any transfers, issues to jobs.

1) There doesn't seem to be a method all loading serial numbers of
our present stock. We have been live for a year, so we need to able
to load the serial numbers.

2) There doesn't seem to be a relationship between a Part Lot only a
Part number, is this correct?

3) In terms of how Vantage deals with serial numbers are there any
particular good or bad points.

4) Does Vantage v8 offer anything more on serial numbers than v6.1

Thanks in advance
