Document No.: Is there a way to enter our own

    I am using 252d.

    When creating a purchase order or vendor invoice, the document number is generated automatically according to the initial settings for document type.  As the auto-generated numbers are incremented by one everytime, there is no duplicated numbers at all.  However, there is a need to enter our own document numbers and I am not sure if there is a way to automatically check if our own doc numbers are duplicated.  Currently, the system allows me to create two invoices with same numbers, but I hope this could be prevented.  Does anybody know if compiere has this kind of auto-check feature?  Thanks folks...

      in the document type deselect Document is number controlled.  THe doc number will still be required.  If you do not enter one then the system will default one for you.

      No auto check feature...Compiere has always allow user to create two or more invoices with same numbers.

      In all versions I have used, Compiere Invoice Vendor always enforces a single instance of 'Doc Number + Doc Type + BP'.  Are you sure it is allowing you to enter a duplicate and COMPLETE the duplicate?
      If you happen to enter a duplicate you get the message "terminated" in the bottom left hand corner of screen .. usually just below where you can see unless you are in full screen mode ;-)
