Can we use Numbering table to generate unique values for any field?


Hi Experts,

We have the following requirement - when a new Supplier is created using the Supplier Management -> Suppliers -> Create Supplier screen, there is a mandatory field External ID. This field should be pre-populated with a meaningful unique value, like say VEN-001. I tried creating a new numbering table (please see the attached screenshot) but not sure how to make the External ID field refer to this value. Please help. If this is not the way to achieve this requirement, please let me know the correct way. I first thought of writing a Script Definition but found that numbering table has no iAPI defined.. so cannot access it from script.

Thanks in advance!
