Business ByDesign - Supplier ID format

I have a customer using SAP Business ByDesign who wants the Supplier ID to start with the year and then have an Alphabetic id after, i.e. 2015JD01. It appears that both supplier and customer ids must be all numeric or start with an Alphabetic character and then can contain numbers in the id. Is there any way to change that to meet the customer's request?

    Hi Jim,

    In the current release, it is not possible to have a number format for Suppliers and Accounts with Alphanumeric. In the Business Configuration work center -> General Business Partners activity -> Define Number Ranges for Business Partners -> Currently you can define either Numbers or Alphabetics only.

    You can post this new idea in influence site -

    Best Regards,
