    Summary:
    Maintain existing supplier numbers
    Content:

    Hello,

    We converting suppliers from legacy system in to cloud. Is it possible to maintain the existing supplier numbers while converting and then also use the numbering in cloud for new suppliers created in cloud thereafter.

    Appreciate if anyone has addressed this requirement

      Yes - we did exactly that.  We used the legacy system supplier numbers during conversion and then allowed the numbering to start in the cloud using a new paradigm so we could easily identify converted vs. newly created suppliers.  

      e.g. our legacy system suppliers started with 000xxxxxx.  our new suppliers created in the cloud start with 100xxxxx.

      Thanks for your reply Judy.

      Hi Mukund,

      To add to Judy's reply, you can achieve this using supplier import process where you are allowed to enter supplier number in the supplier import template and the same will be assigned to the supplier when created.

      Thanks,
