Auto Assign Sort Sequence Number During SKU Generation (F24)

Purpose: Use this screen to define whether the system automatically assigns a SKU sort sequence number to each SKU created in the SKU Generator.

Yes/No field: Select this field if you want the system to automatically assign a SKU sort sequence number to each SKU created in the SKU Generator. See Using the SKU Generator (ESKG).

The SKU sort sequence number is used to determine the order in which the SKUs sort. See SKU Sort Sequence Numbers for an overview.

If the Auto Assign Sort Sequence Number During SKU Generation (F24) system control value is selected, the system uses the sort collating sequence number defined in Working with SKU Elements (WSK1, WSK2, WSK3) to determine the SKU sort sequence number to assign to each SKU. The system assigns a SKU sort sequence number to each SKU in increments of 10.

Example: You are generating SKUs for a skirt in colors black and navy, styles petite and regular and sizes small and medium.

In Work with SKU Elements, the sort collating sequence numbers are defined as:

SKU Element 1

black = sort sequence number is blank

navy = sort sequence number is blank

SKU Element 2

petite = sort sequence number is 1

regular = sort sequence number is 12

SKU Element 3

small = sort sequence number is 2

medium = sort sequence number is 5

1. To assign the sort sequence number, the system first retrieves the sort sequence number defined in Work with SKU Element 1. In the example, the colors black and navy are not assigned a sort sequence number. Since they are not assigned a sort number, the system sorts the elements defined in SKU element 1 alphanumerically.

2. The system then retrieves the sort sequence number defined in Work with SKU Element 2. In the example, petite is assigned a sort sequence number of 1 and regular is assigned a sort sequence number of 12. The system sorts petite styles before regular styles.

3. The system then retrieves the sort sequence number defined in Work with SKU Element 3. In the example, small is assigned a sort sequence number of 2 and medium is assigned a sort sequence number of 5. The system sorts small sizes before medium sizes.

4. In the SKU Generator, the system assigns a SKU sort sequence number to each SKU based on the sort collating sequence numbers defined for each SKU element:

 Item/SKU Element 1/ Sequence # Element 2/ Sequence # Element 3/ Sequence # SKU Sort Sequence Number skirt black (blank) petite (1) small (2) 10.000 skirt black (blank) petite (1) medium (5) 20.000 skirt black (blank) regular (12) small (2) 30.000 skirt black (blank) regular (12) medium (5) 40.000 skirt navy (blank) petite (1) small (2) 50.000 skirt navy (blank) petite (1) medium (5) 60.000 skirt navy (blank) regular (12) small (2) 70.000 skirt navy (blank) regular (12) medium (5) 80.000

Leave this field unselected if you do not want the system to automatically assign a SKU sort sequence number to each SKU created in the SKU Generator.

You can assign a SKU sort sequence number to each SKU of an item in the following ways.

• Enter a SKU sort sequence number in the Sort sequence number field on the Create SKU 1 of 2 (With Overrides) Screen or the Change SKU screen.

• Select an item that has SKUs at the Resequence SKU Collating Sequence Number Screen and select OK to have the system automatically assign a sort sequence number to each SKU. See Assigning SKU Sort Sequence Numbers Based on SKU Element.

• Enter a SKU sort sequence number in the Sort sequence number field on the Work with SKU Generator Screen in Using the SKU Generator (ESKG).
