Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Release : 11.1.11.1.0

The requirement is to have Purchase Order number as 8 digits.
The prefix part of the PO is supposed to be: '200000'

The setup for the prefix has been done in Setup and Maintenance > Manage Procurement Document Numbering.
As per the 'Preview' column in the setup, the 'Next Number' is being appended to the 'Prefix'.

As per requirement, this works correctly till 99 POs.
Eg: For 99th PO, the PO number will be: '20000099'.

However, once it crosses 99, the digits in PO number exceeds 8.
Eg: For 100th PO, the PO number will be: '200000100'.

Is there any workaround to limit the Purchase Order number to 8 digits ?
