Have software recognize when there is a duplicate reference number being used.

You have to remember to use some type of system to distinguish between reference numbers and if you overlap a reference number then you have an issue later when you go to retrieve information in reporting. But you do not know there is a problem until a period of time has gone by.

    To avoid duplicate reference numbers you can open the accounting module and go to Edit > Modify > Setup Journal Names. Scroll to the journal (e.g., Q1 Cash Receipts) and click the + symbol to expand. Enter the CO# and Next Reference #. This will set that journal to auto-number your transactions starting with the specified next reference number.
