How to add Alphabets after numbers in Coding

Dear Team,

I need to achieve the below solution.

I am creating a code with a number from 001 to 999, but after 999 I need add 0AA and next number should 0AB.

Can you please guide me thorough.

    Use wider number range and in your program convert you number from base 10 to base 36, try using a FM like TB_LIMIT_CONVERT_DEC_TO_36 or use the search tool.

    I Think it is not possible to handle through the number range objects also. Because this is the combination of character and numeric


    External intervals can only contain either letters or numbers, as sorting can differ between platforms (Code page):

    Allowed:001 to 999AAA to ZZZNot allowed:AAA to 999


    It is difficult to handle it through the program also. Better to keep the two number ranges like AAA to ZZZ and 001 to 99
