2374315 - Production Tasks numbering gaps.


Some Production task IDs for the selected number range are missing.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Production Control Work Center.
  2. Go to the View Task Control.
  3. In Show:Select All Production tasks by Selection.
  4. Click on Go.
  5. Sort by Task ID.
  6. You can notice some gaps from one Production task to another.


This is not a malfunction of the Task number range component but a choice of design.


The system presents the expected behavior. The Task number ranges are generated based on the specified range, however they are not created in chronological order, hence the gaps.
