There is a need to generate employee numbers based on something other than the delivered sequence.  Here are some of the scenarios that customers have reported:

- Setup employee numbers to equal numbers migrated from a previous system

- Generate numbers starting at a particular number. (i.e. start at 800###)

- Generate alpha numberic employee numbers based on employee name

- Generate with a number in the front of employee ID based on different criteria.  (i.e. Job code that is VP or higher use the employee ID from No.1 to 1000, other employees will use the employee ID greated than 1000)
