Hello all!
When the developer was here, he told me that to help improve vendor recognition, you could highlight the account numbers in the section where phone numbers would be stored.

However, when I try to do so I have to list the "coded" value I don't know how to list the code.

I tried to write:
X7 
7X
X[7]

None of these combo's work.

How can I do this??

Hi,

I don't know if I understand your question really..?

..."highlight the account numbers in the section where phone numbers would be stored..."

Could you elaborate? It looks like you're trying to write a code, but I don't see why actually? What does phone number have to do with account number? Anyway, here's coding in short:
X = all characters
A = letters
N = numbers
X(3) = three characters
X[/] = one character, which is "/"
{N(5)|N(3)} = either five numbers OR three numbers

When optimizing account numbers, make sure to access advanced settings at the bottom, where you should turn off "special characters" if there are any dots (ex: 34.14.2378.3) in the account number.

To me it seems like the developer meant adding the account number to your master-vendor-data where the phone number should be.. Seems odd though..

Hi 
Just weighing in on this one.  If the change is for one vendor only, then you can be specific about how many characters there are.  Such as N(7) if they are all numbers or X(7) if they contain a combination of letters and numbers.

However, if the change is for many vendors, then it is possible that the account number length will vary. In that case you would specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, such as X(5-9).  This would be done in the Invoice Profile so that the change does not have to be made individually to each invoice definition.  

If there are special characters in the account number such as dashes or spaces, you need to also go to the Advanced tab and check the format.  
Kind regards
