You'll notice when you're working with Vendors that each Vendor is assigned their own ID number, much the same way your customers are assigned their own numbers. These numbers help to keep each vendor's record unique and to avoid problems that may be caused if more than one vendor shares a similar name.
ESC does allow you ability to change starting number that these ID's are generated from in the rare instance that it may become necessary. To do so, head to Vendors → Set Vendor Counter.
Change the number ahead to your next starting point and then click OK.
**Never change this number to one previous than the current number. This could cause ESC to recall previous Vendor records, rather than creating new ones and assigning an available ID.
