  • Auto-generated MPI is not sequential

    #1

    I would like to generate sequential MPIs. In Biospecimen settings, MPI Format is set to 1%05d. I would expect sequential 6 digit numbers of the form 100001, 100002, 100003, etc. However, MPIs will occasionally skip. The two most recently generated MPIs were 100155 and 100165.

    Any insight would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Sarah

    Hi,

    i took as format “1%CP_UID(5)%”. You can also take other tokens (e.g. SYS_UID(n), system wide unique ID with n digits) related to what you need. It generates unique labels related to the collection protocol of the form 100001 and so on. But you will have a problem after the label 199999 (when you are exceeding the five digits).

    EDIT: Sorry this does not work for MPI, it works for Specimen labels and things like that.

    Hope it helps. Greeting Christian
