When creating an item based on a catalog item there is a field ("No. Format" in Catalog Item Setup) that defines how the No. for the item is set. The user can choose from in total four options ("Vendor Item No.", "Mfr. + Vendor Item No.", "Vendor Item No. + Mfr." and "Entry No.").

I suggest to add a fifth option "No. Series" which allows to use standard No. series for items based on Inventory Setup.

Being able to do so would help us a lot since our customers want to use the same format for all items independ from what the source of the item was (e.g. Catalog Item or something else).

Thank you for your feedback. We released this feature as part of the functionality in Catalog items use standard number series, can include in blanket sales orders.
