  5. Enable "Auto Generate" by clicking on "Yes" option and specify:
    • Prefix - Prefix should be added to Receiving Transaction Number.
    • Starts with - Starting number of Receiving Transaction Number
    • For instance:
        1. You can choose either “Static Text” or “Year Of Transaction Date”.
        2. If you choose static text, Prefix - Rec_ABC and Starts with - 76.
        3. If you choose Year Of Transaction Date , Prefix would be current year and Starts with - 76.
