You can then assign a different (numbering) sequence to each document definition.
The four rules, that when combined, define what documents a selected sequence assigns numbers to are:
|Application||You select the application that generates the documents you wish to number.|
|For example, to number sales invoices, you select Oracle Receivables.|
|Category||You select a document category to identify a logical subset of documents.|
|For example, if you do not want to number all invoices in Oracle Receivables, you can choose to number only the category of sales invoices.|
|A category identifies a table that stores transactions entered (documents generated) using an Oracle Application.|
|The Category values you can choose from to define a document are dependent upon the application you select.|
|Set of Books||You select the chart of accounts for your business that is affected by the documents you wish to number. You may optionally enable this rule through the Document Flexfield.|
|Method||You select the method that your documents are entered, automatic or manual. You may optionally enable this rule through the Document Flexfield.|
|Automatic is when a concurrent process, such as an external program, is set up to enter transaction data into an Oracle Application.|
|Manual is when a document is manually entered using a form in an application.|
Attention: When assigning sequences to a document definition, each active sequence can be assigned to only one unique combination of application and category (i.e., application table).
