Customize invoice number for QB Pro Desktop 2018.

My fulfillment service created unique invoice numbers for each sales transaction.  I want to use these number in my  QB Pro Desktop 2018.

 

It appears that invoice numbers are limited to 11 characters in  QB Pro Desktop 2018, but I need more characters.

 

These invoice numbers are NOT sequential so they will all be entered or uploaded.

 

How can I implement this in  QB Pro Desktop 2018?

 

Thank you!

Customize invoice number for QB Pro Desktop 2018.

You can not change the size of any field in QB

 

So if the invoice field is not long enough for you, you will have to customize the template,

In customize data layout, on the header tab (left side), use one of the Other fields (30 characters), retitle it to read external  invoice number and in layout designer position it where you need it, just below the default I would think and make your entry in that field

 

But QB needs the QB invoice number to reference invoices, so either allow the default number to increment or change it to match the ending digits of the external invoice number
