http://docs.360works.com/index.php/MirrorSync_advanced_topics#Configuring_MirrorSync_creates_gaps_in_serial_numbers Hello Mirrorsync So I understand now why mirror sync creates these gaps in the serial numbers, ( I originally asked for the clarification on why this does this). However what happens to the internal database if I go back to these serial numbers and adjust them to be the next sequential number. Or better yet, why doesn't the sync tool on setup capture what the next sequential number should be, do its testing and than write back to the database the captured value so our files do not end up with these sequential gaps? I need you to consider what happen if a company gets a visit from the taxman during an audit and they question comes up why the gaps in invoice numbers. Where invoices deleted, is the company hiding something etc,etc. The other fact is let's face it we are not pro mirrorsync users when we set this tool up, we make mistakes, we don't understand the relationships correctly, we add something to tables we want to include. All these things we do as we are learning greatly accelerate these serial numbers within our file every time we run the sync configuration. I personally have an estimate table that only has 700 records, but serial number wise because of mirror sync is showing my next serial number as est1200. In my learning of the tool I recently realized that when giving my remote users a full copy of the database, even though I was not syncing my invoice table with them, the remote user did In fact have all the invoices from date of them downloading there working copy. I have now learned to make the script run on startup, checking if the device has an active connection or not, and remove all invoices from there device, but, from now on anytime I run the configuration I am also going to elevate those invoices numbers. And yes I realize that I can distribute a different file, and not include those tables in the iPad version, but now I have to maintain 2 different files if we go that route. As I said I am very new to the FileMaker world, and maybe there is something I don't understand still about why this happen, and maybe it's critical to the internal database integrity. Can I change the numbers back? OR, if I can ask for anything this upcoming Christmas from 360works..... Thanks again Nate
